MS 'The little pot boiler'

Scope and Content

MS draft of the book ‘The little pot boiler’, with MS illustrations and cuttings used in the work. Various MS annotations to indicate changes, corrections and measurements. The sections entitled ‘Dogs’ (which includes some draft MS illustrations not included in the book) and ‘Telephones’ (which is missing one illustration) are the only ones in TS. The pictures on pages 64 and 65 in the book, entitled ‘Sir Keith Prowse (in Arab costume) contemplating the slogan’ and “‘We have the best seats…”’ appear to be missing. Two MS drafts of poems not included in the book are in this file, entitled ‘Brave New World’(a comic variation on ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’) and ‘Why?’. The latter has some illustrations relating to the poem on a separate piece of paper, pinned to the text with some tracing paper overlaying them. An MS note on this second piece of paper indicates the positioning of these pictures.
