Scope and Content

Manuscript of the volume in the form of a uniform typescript rather than separate manuscripts supplied by each poet; with preliminary pages supplied by Carcanet. The manuscript has been copy-edited in pencil by Val Warner, and some further printing instructions have been added by Schmidt (in red, on the book's 'notes' section) and by the printers' copy-preparer.


The main body of the manuscript has been foliated throughout by the copy-editor, and folios numbered from 1-209, with additional folio 13A inserted. The notes are placed at the end of the manuscript and have been foliated separately as 1-5.
