Manuscript and proof material

Scope and Content

Bundle of manuscript and proof material. This may represent the material which was typeset in-house at Carcanet, as it largely consists of poetry contributions. Each piece of manuscript material was clipped to its page proof, except in the case of Davie's editorial. The editorial has been corrected and initialled by Davie and is obviously his own author's proof, but there is no obvious evidence to suggest that the other proofs included here are authors' proofs; the only markings have been made in the same hand throughout, probably by Carcanet editorial staff. Apart from the editorial, the material consists of poems by Charles Tomlinson, Alistair Elliot, Geoffrey Holloway, William Radice and Samuel Menashe. With a note in Schmidt's hand to Peter [Jones] which must have originally accompanied a copy of the essay by George Steiner included in the issue.
