C.H. Sisson, Exactions

Scope and Content

File containing collated proofs of C.H. Sisson's poetry collection Exactions (Manchester: Carcanet New Press, 1980). The book was typeset in-house at Carcanet and printed by Billings. Margaret Hutchinson was the proof-reader and collator. The proofs consist of acknowledgements and epigraph pages, and all the poem texts. These were originally Sisson's own proofs; he has made corrections in blue ink, initialled the proofs and dated them 22 December 1979. Hutchinson used this set to form the collated set; she has transferred any additional corrections she identified in green, dated the set as collated on 4 January 1980, and added a query on the front sheet.
