Hard covered (black) notebook, with entries dated sporadically. The date June 1926 is recorded at the front of the notebook.
The last dated entry ('Begun Oct 1931') is 'Towards a refutation of I. A. Richards' Theory of Meaning as applied to poetry', comprising 37 numbered statements. Underneath the title, Upward notes: 'All my former attempts - their wreckage strews this book - to propose a solution to the problem of poetic belief have been based unconsciously on idealistic assumptions. The present attempt is consciously based on dialectical materialism'.
Partially foliated (1-85) by Upward, although many further pages are used.
With four loose folios containing entries dated 27 July - 8 August 1928.
