Annotated publication

Scope and Content

A bound copy of Daryush's pamphlet, Verses: seventh book (Carcanet Press, 1971), which contains Daryush's own pencilled corrections of errors which found their way into the published version. One printing instruction has been added by Schmidt in black ink. With two inserts: pencil sketch of poem layout (2), which was originally inserted between poems 1 and 2; and a list of the corrections to be made (3), originally inserted between poems 35 and 36. There are also two additional holograph lists of textual corrections required.


The published pamphlet and inserts were originally stored in the Verses: seventh book book file, but they obviously post-date the publication of this work, and were used in the preparation of the Collected poems. The two additional lists of corrections were in the Collected poems book file.
