Collated proofs

Scope and Content

Page proofs of the volume which have been corrected by Val Warner, indicating printing errors in red, other changes in blue, and queries in pencil. An additional stanza (the second) of 'Reflections on Love I' which was omitted from the proofs has cut from the manuscript and attached to sheet 37 (proof page 53), with a note suggesting that as Wright himself did not note this omission on his proofs it should not be added to the final proofs. An additional missing manuscript stanza of 'Rook' has been removed from Wright's own proofs and attached to sheet 71 (proof page 119) for inclusion in the final version. The proofs are stored with: annotated typescript queries on the proofs produced by Val Warner; typescript letter to Michael Schmidt from Warner dated 28 July 1976, originally sent to accompany the collated proofs of the volume; correspondence between Wright and Gareth [Reeves] relating to the proofs (5-10 July 1976); some of Wright's original typescript preliminary sheets for the volume, including the contents list and title page (with earlier rejected titles crossed through); and miscellaneous manuscript notes, possibly made by Reeves during typesetting.
