Abstract:

The collection documents the submissions and editorial process beginning with the first issue in 1959 and continuing through 2009. The collection includes copies of most issues beginning with issue 18 (1963). The bulk of the material begins with 1965 and consists of manuscripts, typescripts, illustrations, galleys, and proofs. Editors' correspondence begins with 1959 and includes correspondence of editors Martin Bax, J.G. Ballard, and others. In addition, a small amount of financial material and related papers appears primarily as enclosures to correspondence with the Arts Council of Great Britain. The collection also includes galleys and proofs of Francis Fytton's 1967 book The Nation Within. The correspondence deals primarily with the day-to-day work of editing and publication: choice of illustrations, corrections of galleys and proofs, and discussion among editors and between editors and writers as to what should be published and why, including some in-depth critical evaluations of writers' works and discussion of the literary and artistic community. The financing of Ambit is another frequent topic, especially in the correspondence with the Arts Council of Great Britain, a source of grants for the journal. Among the more prominent correspondents are Dannie Abse, Diane Ackerman, Fleur Adcock, Brian Aldiss, Earle Birney, Alan Brownjohn, Hume Cronyn, Gavin Ewart, Allen Ginsberg, Ian Hamilton, Anselm Hollo, Elizabeth Jennings, James Kirkup, James Laughlin, Edward Lucie-Smith, George MacBeth, Judith Merril, Michael Moorcock, Susan Musgrave, Brian Patten, Peter Porter, Peter Redgrove, Vernon Scannell, Stevie Smith, Ralph Steadman, Paul Theroux, and Anthony Thwaite.
