  • Request
The printed poems on pp. 9-64 were revised by Flecker and the blank leaves (fols. 65a-164) used by him, 1907-1914, for drafts and fair copies of 47 'Further Poems, 1907-'. At fols. 155r, 158v-163r are lists of verses for projected publication and draft title pages. Many of the poems were published in periodicals and in later volumes of Flecker’s verse, including the posthumous Collected Poems. The poem 'Opportunity' (fol. 121) and an unidentified item (fol. 153) have been torn out. There are several annotations by J.D. Beazley, for example at fols. 82, 86, 111-112, 122-123, 127 and 149. See Sherwood, pp. 74-75.
