Manuscript (incomplete)

Scope and Content

Incomplete manuscript of the book, in the form of ribbon and carbon typescript as well as original offprints and cuttings. It has been marked up with typesetting instructions by Val Warner. The manuscript is lacking: preliminary sheets; 'The Rise of Primitivism and Its Relevance to the Poetry of Expressionism and Dada'; 'Bolshevism in Art: Dada and Politics'; 'The Picture of Nobody: Some Remarks on Robert Walser' (although the appendix to this essay is included); 'Mörike's Moonchild'; 'Hermann Hesse's Morgenlandfahrt'; 'Two Mountain Scenes in Novalis and the Question of Symbolic Style'; the two appendices, and the notes.


The archivist has added running numbering at the top left of each sheet or booklet throughout.
