Manuscript

Scope and Content

Manuscript of the collection, in the form of ribbon and carbon typescript poems. Minimal printing instructions have been added by Schmidt, who probably typeset the book himself; he has added details of preliminaries to be included, and some of the text to appear on the book jacket. He also appears to have carried out some minor editing of individual poems in black and blue ink. Some minor emendations and annotations have also been made in pencil, and these may be Cavaliero's own; an additional typed list of more substantial emendations may also represent authorial changes. Minor changes in the content of the collection took place after the contents sheet was typed, and Schmidt has noted these on the contents page. Also stored with: copy of a sketch by Rigby Graham, which was possibly an idea for a cover illustration; and a Cavaliero's typed title page for 'Morning Country: Poems', an earlier title for the collection.
