Galley Proofs for "Something Nothing"; Hone Tuwhare's fourth collection of poetry., Tuwhare, Hone
Author Name:    Tuwhare, Hone

Title:   Galley Proofs for "Something Nothing"; Hone Tuwhare's fourth collection of poetry.

Binding:   Hardcover

Edition:   First Edition

Publisher:   Dunedin Caveman Press (1974)

Seller ID:   7269

Corrected galley proofs for Hone Tuwhare's fourth book of poetry, "Something Nothing". This title was published in Dunedin by the Caveman Press in 1974. Loose long galley leaves, dimensions: 152 x 456 mm. The leaves are printed on one side only. The leaves are held loosely within cloth boards with ties and a printed paper label on the front board. The manuscript corrections consist of the removal of the comma from "Something, Nothing" at each occurence, and changes to the page numbering. There are also a few handwritten notes (presumably made by the Caveman Press publisher Trevor Reeves) on the first leaf. The proofs do not have the contents page or the copyright page, but there is a note that the contents page is to be made in the same style as that used in "Sapwood and Milk". The illustrations by Robin White, which appear in the final published book, are not included. There are a few stains to the first few leaves, and some rubbing and wear to the corners of some leaves. "Something Nothing" has some of Tuwhare's best poems, including "Ron Mason", written after the death of RAK Mason. Several poems from "Something Nothing" were used in later anthologies of Tuwhare's poems: "Selected Poems" (1980) had seven poems from Something Nothing (along with 20 from No Ordinary Sun, 5 from Come Rain Hail, 5 from Sapwood and Milk, and 2 from Making a Fist of It.) In "Year of the Dog, Poems New and Selected"(1982), 12 of the 32 poems were from Something Nothing. In "Was Wirklicher ist als Sterben" (1985), 5 of the 33 poems were from Something Nothing. ; Folio
