Manuscript (incomplete)

Scope and Content

Incomplete manuscript of the collection in the form of photocopies of the pieces from earlier publications, with emendations made by Rickword by hand. The order of the poems differs from the published version of the book, and the manuscript lacks all of the penultimate section ('Later verses and a diversion') except two poems ('Incompatible Worlds' and 'Instead of a Christmas Card') and the whole of the final section ('Translations from Arthur Rimbaud') as well as the poems 'A Glimpse into the Great Beyond' and 'An Old Ryhme Re-ryhmed'. There are also some additional poems which do not appear in the published version, entitled 'Lament', 'Moon-talk' and 'Sick thoughts'.
