Another fine example of Squires' "themed" catalogues. This one features 28 manuscript packages of manuscripts from the recently departed and great Fantasy/SF writer, Jack Vance. The packages include the author's original holograph notes for the story, 1st drafts, 2nd drafts, proof copies etc....VERY COMPLETE!I stupidly resisted buying one despite Roy's urgings. One of my many haunting regrets!Squires catalogues 1-20 plus supplement have become highly cherished collectors items especially for those of us who knew him personally; the early ones are quite scarce and expensive as are the ones featuring Lovecraft material.I still marvel at the Roy Squires catalogs and it's more than forty years later! They are written with such erudition, humor and good taste. There was no one like him.From the Roy A. Squires archive!
