Scope and Content

Book file containing manuscript and proofs of the anthology Five American poets: Robert Hass, John Matthias, James McMichael, John Peck, Robert Pinsky, selected by John Matthias, with an introduction by Michael Schmidt (Manchester: Carcanet New Press, 1979). The proof-reader and collator was Margaret Hutchinson and the book was printed by Billings.


Material in CPA/1/2/1/28/1-3 formed a coherent book file and was stored together in Box 30. The material listed in CPA/1/2/1/28/4-5 formed two separate bundles in Box 55, but relates to the anthology and has therefore been reconciled with the rest of the papers.
