Scope and Content

Book file relating to Daniel Weissbort's poetry collection Soundings (Manchester: Carcanet New Press, 1977), which was typeset in-house at Carcanet and printed by Unwin Brothers Ltd. Includes the manuscript of the collection and author's proofs. Also included here (as /3) is a large bundle of manuscript poems by Weissbort which were stored in a separate file alongside the Soundings material. It includes a number of the poems published in Soundings as well as other pieces, and presumably represents an accumulation of poems sent to Schmidt by Weissbort over time, from which the texts to appear in Soundings were selected.
