Typescript of the collection, with some editorial annotation and minimal mark-up (both in the hand of Michael Schmidt). Includes acknowledgements and epigraph pages but no other preliminaries. Some of the poems originally intended for the collection were extracted as a result of the editing process, and these are now stored in Powell's correspondence file at CPA/2/1/56. The manuscript is stored with a postcard from Powell dated 11 March 1976, originally sent to accompany a biographical note, and also referring to an essay on Peter Scupham and Powell's submissions for Schmidt's anthology, Ten English Poets.
