London, No Publisher, No Date [c1850s]. Manuscript. Unbound. Very good condition. The original manuscript for an unpublished, but possibly performed, dramatisation of the most infamous of pennies dreadful; Varney the Vampire (most likely by J.M. Rymer or Thomas Prest). 30-40pp (I could count them, but it's pretty fragile - if the page count is of vital importance to you, just let us know). Holograph, both sides. In plain paper wrappers, with label. The wrapper is a little chipped and worn but internally it's excellent. Presumably unique, no copies or references located. There's not the slightest hint of authorship that I can find. A lovely item. [10186, Hyraxia Books].
