Manuscript

Scope and Content

Manuscript of the collection, which consists principally of photocopied typescript poems, some carbon typescript poems, and original typescript section title and preliminary sheets. The typescript is missing the poem 'Travelling V'. The typescript has been marked up for printing: instructions in green and red ink are probably by Michael Schmidt; other mark-up probably originated at the printing house. Stored at the front of the typescript is a number of photocopied typescript pages which were extracted from the typescript to be replaced with retyped versions; Schmidt has made notes on the first sheet relating to the acknowledgements page of the volume.

Arrangement

The archivist has added running numbers at the top left-hand corner of each sheet.
