Page proofs of the volume, consisting of: photocopy paste-up of the book jacket; some manuscript inserts in the hands of Schmidt and Robert Wells; typescript list of translators; contents, introduction and translations in proof form; sheet of typescript (from the manuscript in /1) inserted before page 64 because four lines of poetry from this sheet had been omitted during typesetting; inserted concrete poem by E.M. de Melo e Castro before p. 140 (this is not the poem which was ultimately used in the publication); and at the end a list of other Carcanet publications in proof form. The proofs have been corrected in red and black. The black corrections are in the hand of Robert Wells, and the red in another hand (possibly the proof-reader or other Carcanet personnel).
Scope and Content
The unnumbered sheets and inserts at the front of the proofs have been numbered i-vii by the archivist. The printed page numbering sequence then runs from page 1 to page 182, with the two inserts and final sheet noted above.
