Manuscript

Scope and Content

Typescript of the anthology in its final form, including Lindsay's introduction and texts of all the poems ultimately included, although the typescript is missing two sheets (original folios 101 and 119); these were returned by Lindsay separately with the proofs (and ultimately found their way into the collated proofs at /4). This manuscript takes a similar format to /1: the introduction and some of the poems are full-page photostats, and most of the poems are photostats from publications pasted onto larger sheets. There is some annotation, principally supplying poet's names, indicating poems for omission, and giving information on pagination for typesetting. There are also some manuscript inserts.

Arrangement

Archivist's numbering is at the top left of each sheet to distinguish it from the incomplete original foliation which is at the top right.
