Scope and Content

Book file containing the collated proofs of Michael Hamburger's poetry collection Real estate (Manchester: Carcanet New Press, 1977), printed by Unwin Brothers Ltd, and typeset in-house at Carcanet. The copy-editor was Val Warner. These proofs consist of: photocopy paste-up of the book jacket; annotated typescript contents list; photocopy of Hamburger's original typescript title page; acknowledgement page; author's note; and the poetry texts. The poem 'Two Photographs' had been omitted from the proofs and a typescript version has been inserted here. Warner has corrected the proofs, using red to indicate typesetting errors, blue for other changes to be made, and noting queries or comments in pencil.


As there are a number of inserts, the archivist has added running sheet numbers throughout.
