Authors' proofs

Scope and Content

Page proofs of the volume, excluding all preliminaries and introductory matter. Each section was sent out to the author concerned, who corrected their section and returned the proofs to Schmidt. These proofs are lacking pages 76-83, which constitutes the whole of William Bedford's section; Bedford's corrected proofs are stored in his correspondence file at CPA/2/1/7. Charles Boyle's section of proofs may have been returned late as it appears to have been used directly for typesetting, rather than its changes being transferred to the collated proofs first; the collated proofs (at /2) include corrections to Boyle's poems apparently in Schmidt's hand; further corrections made by Boyle himself and not marked by Schmidt on the collated proofs appear in these proofs, and have been crossed through when reset.
