Collated proofs

Scope and Content

Page proofs of the collection, comprising: photocopy paste-up of book jacket; half title; and poem texts. The proofs have been corrected in blue ink by Robert Wells, incorporating Hooker's own corrections. There is an additional insert before pages 52-53; this is the first typescript page of the poem 'Postscript', taken from the manuscript because two lines of text were missed during typesetting. The poem 'Birth' in proof form has also been inserted before 'Gull on a Post' and the page numbers altered by hand to reflect this.
