Manuscript

Scope and Content

Stevie Davies's original typescript; the poems have been typed out uniformly rather than photocopied from other published sources and preliminary pages have been added by Carcanet. The copy-editor has marked up the typescript in pencil, standardized spellings and forms in accordance with house style and has undertaken some minor editing of Davies's introduction to the volume. In three instances of this editing there are notes in blue ink overriding the copy-editor's alterations and indicating that original readings should be restored. Some other minor correcting has also been carried out in blue ink. The typesetter has indicated in black ink where the page breaks in the proof version are to be fall. There are also a few notes of clarification made in red ink.

Arrangement

Original foliation runs throughout from 1 to 120, but folios 115-117 are missing (and are noted as such on the first sheet).
