  • Scope and Contents

    The notebooks serve more as an assortment of information - notes, press cuttings and documentary evidence, such as copies of wills - to be used in the preparation of the specific entries of the dictionary, than as a considered manuscript. In many cases only the heading of the name of the poet has been entered.

    None of the volumes has an index.
