Daniel Weissbort, The leaseholder

Scope and Content

Book file relating to Daniel Weissbort's poetry booklet The leaseholder (Oxford: Carcanet Press, 1971). The booklet was published by Parchment (Oxford) Ltd. The only item held in the book file is a set of unmarked pasted-up proofs, consisting of typeset text and page numbers pasted onto one side of pamphlet-sized sheets which have been pasted together into folios to approximate how the pamphlet would be folded and gathered. Some lines of type have been reset and pasted over earlier erroneous lines, suggesting that this is not the first stage of proofing. The title page is missing, although author and title details are printed on a long strip of paper stored with the proofs.
