Theodore Sturgeon, American science-fiction author: Typescripts of two stories by Theodore Sturgeon - 'Hurricane Trio' and 'Bulkhead' - with the leaves for republication of the other nine stories collected by him in the anthology 'A Way Home' (1955). With the signed and corrected galley proofs.
The anthology was published by Funk & Wagnalls of New York in 1955. The leaves carrying the nine stories date from their original printings between 1947 and 1955. In the anthology 'A Way Home' Sturgeon brought together eleven of his short stories published between 1947 and 1955, revising them heavily for republication. This item consists of the entire anthology as handed over for typesetting (mainly 'paste-ups', as Sturgeon calls them), together with the galley proofs of the anthology. Included among the 'paste ups' is the typewritten copy (on Funk & Wagnalls paper) of two of the stories ('Hurricane Trio', 43 folio pages; and 'Bulkhead', 46 folio pages), both with manuscript corrections by Sturgeon and his editor, together with the original printed texts of the other nine stories, on leaves removed from the magazines in which they appeared (Astounding Science Fiction; Galaxy; Other Worlds), also with manuscript corrections by Sturgeon and his editor. The printed leaves are tipped-in onto folio leaves numbered from 1 to 206 (the numeration including the two typescripts). These 'paste-ups' are on aged paper with some wear to extremities. They are clear and complete, except for the final leaf of the final story lacking its backing, which would have been p.207. At the bottom of the second page Sturgeon has written 'Watch copy on both sides of past-up throughout'. The galley proofs are numbered in type 1 to 113, with each leaf carrying the text of two pages. In poor condition, on aged paper with fraying to extremities, and with the first leaf, which is signed 'Theodore Sturgeon', torn in two, with some loss and repair. Numerous manuscript emendations by Sturgeon and his editor, with each of Sturgeon's marginal comments initialed 'T. H. S.' (Book ref. 10529) £900.00
