Manuscript

Scope and Content

Manuscript of the collection in the form of a typescript, with Buchanan's own typescript preliminary sheets. Schmidt has made minor typesetting annotations; other marks reflect Buchanan's own emendations to the poems. Includes one extra poem called 'Dante' following 'Motor-Cars' which did not appear in the published version and which has been crossed through here by Buchanan. There are various different layers of foliation, reflecting alterations in the arrangement of the poems. Stored with a covering letter from Buchanan to Schmidt (30 November 1979) relating to his submission of this corrected and rearranged version of the manuscript.

Arrangement

The archivist has numbered the preliminary sheets i-v; this is followed by an original foliation system running from 5 to 58.
