GASCOYNE, DAVID (1916-2001)
TWO AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPTS:
(i) AUTOGRAPH IMPROMPTU VERSE ON A POSTCARD TO T.S. ELIOT, 6 lines, beginning 'Though some pigeons and tourists seem to fraternize, the birds / Got too absorbed in grain to pay attention to their class...', with two lines on the picture side showing the Lion of St Marco in Venice, 2 pages, small octavo, Venice, June 1950
ALMOST CERTAINLY UNPUBLISHED
(ii) AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT OF HIS POEM BEGINNING 'FOR YET ANOTHER FURTHER FINAL?', c. 22 lines, beginning 'For Yet Another Further Final? -- Further Visit. Before / Sleep goes to Breath...', 1 page, small folio, not dated
Publication of these pieces has not been traced: not in Collected Poems, 1965, Early Poems, 1980 or Poems, edited by Judy Gascoyne, 2001. No manuscripts by Gascoyne have been sold at auction. The first item is unlikely to have been published.
