Scope and Content

File containing collated proofs of John Skelton's Selected poems, edited with an introduction by Gerald Hammond (Manchester: Carcanet Press, 1980). The book was published as part of the Fyfield series. It was typeset in-house at Carcanet and printed by Billings. Margaret Hutchinson was the proof-reader and collator. These page proofs are complete from the introduction onwards. Hutchinson usually used the author's proofs as the basis for the collated set, and corrections made in blue ink throughout this set are probably by Hammond. Hutchinson has added further corrections in green and dated the proofs as collated on 3 July 1980. Faults with the typesetting have been indicated in red, presumably by Carcanet staff. Stored with a typescript title page for the book, presumably taken from Hammond's manuscript.
