Neil Powell, Carpenters of light

Scope and Content

Manuscript and proofs of Neil Powell's critical work Carpenters of light: some contemporary English poets (Manchester: Carcanet New Press, 1979). The book was printed by Billings. The proofs are not in an in-house format and may have been produced either by Woodspring Press who did some typesetting work for Carcanet during this period, or by Billings. The copy-editor was probably Peter Jones and the proof-reader Margaret Hutchinson.
