Manuscript

Scope and Content

Manuscript of the collection, in the form of ribbon, carbon and photocopy typescript poems (reflecting the way the collection accumulated over time, with Mills sending Schmidt manuscript poems during 1974 and 1975); with contents pages. This differs from the published version in the ordering of some of the poems; it also lacks the poems 'Premonition' and 'The Crayfish' which appeared in the final version, and has one additional poem, 'Letter from Scotland' which was ultimately omitted.
