Milford Haven harbour

  • NLW MS 22769D
  • File
  • [c. 1858]

A volume containing a transcript of Remarks on the Pre eminent Natural advantages of Milford Haven as the Western Terminal Port to the Railways of Great Britain 1846, appended to which are twenty-one pen-and-ink and pencil sketches of the South and West Wales coast, illustrating the narrative. The text evinces the author's knowledge of the navigational hazards of the South and West Wales coast and may be the work of David Propert, harbour-master at Milford Haven, a spirited voice in advocating Milford's case as the western terminal port to the railways. These remarks, much condensed and re-arranged, and without the sketches, were published as an anonymous pamphlet with the same title in 1847.

P10 Revised page proofs

The file comprises the second revise of the page proofs, pages 7, 43, 79-82, 207-212, 217-8, 237-8, and 241-3. There are corrections and revision by David Jones in pencil and red ink. Not all of the corrections are found in the 1st edition. Some of the latter corrections are marked by David Jones with a yellow cross.

P6 Page proofs

The file comprises page proofs of Parts V-VIII, which were originally stapled together, but found loose and scattered, with page 168 wanting. It has been stamped for return to the printers and marked 'Authors final' with the date 18 April 1952 on page 122. It has been corrected and revised by David Jones in pencil and red ink, marked by blue strokes, perhaps David Jones' mark of a transfer of the corrections to the set of page proofs returned to the printer, or of his seeing the corrections made in the revise. All alterations made in the revise seem to be marked in P6. There are comments by the 'Faber hand' throughout (as in P3) with replies by David Jones e.g. page 131.

P5 Page proofs

The file comprises page proofs of Parts V-VIII, which were stapled together. They have been corrected by David Jones in pencil and red ink, less so than P6. It includes correction and revision which do not appear in the revised page proofs: probably they were made after the return of the page proofs to the printer. Most of these are marked by David Jones in red or yellow. A few of them David Jones failed to pick up later (e.g. p. 216).

P4 Page proofs

The file comprises page proofs of the Preface and Parts I-IV, which were stapled together. They have been corrected by David Jones in pencil, ink and red ink, and include more revisions than P3. On page 9 David Jones has written 'Please return this copy of galley pages to me' and his address is written on p. 121v.

P3 Page proofs

The file comprises page proofs of the Preface and Parts I-IV, which were stapled together, and stamped for return to the printer. They have been corrected with minor revisions by David Jones in pencil and red ink, with suggestions regarding layout. There are instructions to the printer in the 'Faber' hand which has dated the proofs April 1952 on p. 9.
