N.d., n.p. Item #3524
8 x 11 in., 9 pp. typescript, folded once.
Typescript draft of "The Subliminal Report," prepared by Angus MacLise, likely ahead of the poem's 1975 publication as Starstreams Poetry Series, no. 4 [Dreamweapon Works 2]. MacLise has made minor corrections to the text in pencil on pages 1 and 5 and once in pen on page 9. Pages are numbered in pen by MacLise with autograph title and page count on the verso of page 9, where MacLise has described the typescript as "Copy 1."
Though an undated 14 page carbon draft of the poem appears in MacLise's papers at Columbia University, this draft is likely a later version of the work, as its length and content matches the Bardo Matrix edition. MacLise's corrections are minor and reflected in the published work, suggesting this draft was likely prepared for publication.
Typescript is well preserved with clean and readable text. There is minor staining to the left edges of pages and small instances of smudging to the first page (see photos). Page 9 exhibits shallow bends to the corners of the page and contains an approx. 1/4 in. tear to the right-hand side where the paper has been folded.
