Scope and Content

Manuscript of the collection in ribbon and photocopy typescript form. Includes title-page epigraph and poem texts, with the exception of 'Upon Crappleton House' which is missing. There is very minimal printing mark-up; what there is appears in red in the hand of a Carcanet editor [possibly Peter Jones], with some annotations in the hand of Michael Schmidt.


There are three unnumbered sheets at the front of the manuscript followed by an original foliation system. While many of the sheets have been foliated in red, the faint pencil foliations reflect the final order of the poems. This foliation runs 1-72, but is lacking 65-67.
