Scope and Contents

From the Series:

Much of Ruthven Todd's prose writing, especially in his later life, was repetitious: he not only made numerous drafts and re-writings, but he used the same material in both books and articles. In particular, he made use of his own reminiscences in his work on Dylan Thomas and Fitzrovia as well as in the more autobiographical 'Dead and other friends and places'.

MSS.26834-26856 contain material intended for full-length books; MSS.26857-26863 consist of shorter works and articles.
