Scope and Content

Preparatory work for Peake's fictionalised account of his childhood [working title 'China to Eltham'].

Although the earliest material dates from 1939, Peake probably started work on his autobiography in 1950; see Maeve Gilmore, Peake's Progress (Middlesex: Penguin, 1981), p.470.
