Scope and Content

Book file relating to Michael Cayley's poetry pamphlet Moorings (Oxford: Carcanet Press, 1971), printed by Parchment (Oxford) Ltd. The book file contains only one version of the pamphlet: an unmarked paste-up, in the form of typeset versions of the poems pasted onto separate pages; page numbers have also been pasted in.


The pages have been left in exactly the order they were found, which is not in numerical sequence, as it presumably reflects the way the book was put together; some of them had been pasted together into booklets or quires, although others have come loose at some stage. They have been interleaved with archival tissue.
