Manuscript

Scope and Content

Manuscript of the entire anthology, which takes the form of original typescripts in different formats (including some photocopies) supplied by each of the authors represented; the acknowledgements, contents and introduction have been supplied by Atlas, and the initial two preliminary pages by Carcanet. The typescript contains minor annotations and corrections in blue ink probably made by Atlas before the typescript was submitted; Michael Schmidt has edited Atlas's introduction using black ink, although none of the poems have been edited. The manuscript has been marked up with printing instructions in green ink, and further instructions added in pencil, probably at the printing house. A page at the front of the manuscript lists the addresses of the poets included in the volume.

Arrangement

The first page, which does not form part of the book itself, is unnumbered, but the copy-editor or printing house have foliated the rest of the manuscript, from 1 to 92.
