Typescripts with Author's Corrections for Two or Three Graces.

103ff. typed carbon sheets comprising the typescripts for the complete contents of Huxley's 1926 collection, Two or Three Graces. In addition to the title novella, the collection contains three shorter stories: "The Monocle," "Fairy Godmother," and "Half-Holiday." This is likely the setting copy for the book, as some of the pencil notations are concerned with matters of font selection and page breaks; also, it has the Little & Ives receipt stamp on the verso of page 4, showing it as being received on 8 December 1925. Huxley composed almost all of his works on the typewriter, and these typescripts show the author's changes in black and red pen, as well as an editor's annotations in pencil for the printer. The title of "Fairy Godmother" was changed by Huxley, and the first page of the story has a slip from the publisher tipped into the margin. Housed in a specially-made, folding cloth chemise and a green morocco-backed slipcase. Some edgewear is present to the thin typing paper, and a marginal tear to page 74 has resulted in slight text loss. Item #23115
