n.p., n.d. Manuscript. An interesting Aiken piece. 4pp, typed single-sided. Signed (we think) by Aiken in the top left. A couple of amendments. A typescript of Aiken's Another Lycidas. It's unclear where this particular typescript appears in the history of this particular poem. The poem has been folded at some point, and given that the typed 'i' is consistently heavier than the other letters, one assumes it to be a top copy, though that does not imply the typescript is the genesis of the poem, though it would seem logical that it was typed by Aiken, given the signature. Any assignation further would just be speculative. The date also appears equally elusive, taking the assumption that the typescript predates publication, the earliest reference to the poem we can find is the 1950s, though instinct tells me it may be earlier - 20s or 30s. Apologies for the lack of solid fact in this description. In very good condition. [9328, Hyraxia Books].
