Letter, 5 May 1898, from George Lillie Craik, Macmillan & Co Ltd, St. Martin's Street, London, W.; sent to R. C. Trevelyan at the National Liberal Club, Whitehall Place, S.W.. - They have asked a 'friend' to help them decide about Trevelyan's poems ["Mallow and Asphodel"]; his opinion is 'favourable' and therefore they are willing to publish the work on commission; advises Trevelyan to add some 'poems on modern themes' if he can as this will increase the book's appeal. They will keep the manuscript until Trevelyan says where he would like it to be sent; expects he will want to look through it before it goes to the printers.
Gathering of printed page proofs for the 1898 publication of "Mallow and Asphodel" by Macmillan, with numerous duplicate pages. Date stamp, '28 May '98'; extensive corrections in manuscript.
9 pages (versos blank) from a lined notebook, with the "Archilochus" poems from "Mallow and Asphodel" written out, with corrections, in Trevelyan's hand.
Four copies of galley proofs of poems from "Mallow and Asphodel", with Cambridge University Press date stamps from 11 November 1937 to 4 January 1938. All have extensive corrections in Trevelyan's hand; two copies have attached printed "First Proof" labels from Cambridge University Press. Seemingly from a "Collected Works" or other anthology, but Trevelyan's "Collected Works" was in fact published in two volumes by Longmans in 1939. One copy contains two sides of a typed revision of the final lines of Trevelyan's "Orpheus"; the verso of the second sheet has draft [?] lines in pencil, "Seven years have I now loved you..." in Trevelyan's hand.
Press cuttings, sent to Trevelyan by Macmillan and Co. or cuttings agencies, from the: "Scotsman"; "Academy" (two copies); "Glasgow Herald"; "Literature"; "Speaker"; "Bookman"; "Oxford Magazine"; "Leeds Mercury"; and "Times". Dates between 1 September 1898 and 4 October 1899.
