Scope and Content

Exercise book with Barr's Hill School label, marked by Derbyshire as being used when she was in Lower III, Upper IV and V forms; however, the only content in the volume is dated 1948. Only a few pages have been used, to transcribe poetry by Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Shelley, Bulwer Lytton and Longfellow, alongside a composition of Derbyshire's own, written when she was eleven, entitled 'Guy Fawke's Night'. The final page of the book has been used for notes on figures of speech.
