Copy typescript

Scope and Content

100-page typescript entitled 'Autobiographical Notes' by Edward Carpenter, inscribed to Charlie Sixsmith, and marked as copy 2. The text is a draft which was subsequently incorporated into Carpenter's published autobiography, My Days and Dreams: Being Autobiographical Notes (London, George Allen and Unwin Ltd., 1916); it contains versions of Chapters I-VIII and X of the published volume. In this draft Chapter III is not distinguished by a separate heading, Chapter VI is entitled 'Millthorpe' instead of the published 'Manual work and market- gardening', Chapter VII is called simply 'Socialism' instead of 'Sheffield and Socialism', and the published Chapter IX ('Millthorpe and household life') is omitted.

The text is a carbon copy of a typescript and the manuscript title page is in Carpenter's hand.
