Literary manuscripts and proofs

Scope and Content

Manuscript and typescript poems and drafts of prose and dramatic works by John Heath-Stubbs and others. There are also a number of proofs of published works and working notes.


Arranged in ten sub-series according to format (manuscript or typescript), genre (e.g. poetry, dramatic verse, prose) and likely author. Some literary manuscripts can be definitely attributed to John Heath-Stubbs as they are in his own distinctive hand or are drafts of his known published works, but others are more ambiguous. Where there is any doubt over the authorship of the manuscripts this has been stated in the sub-series description.
