New York, Doubleday, 1984. Manuscript. Unbound. Working material for Robert Bloch's Night of the Ripper. 1. Night of the Ripper manuscript. Typed. 338 sheets. Corrected throughout, probably typesetting copy and their corrections. Mostly xeroxed. Signed by Bloch. Assume this is a later typescript. 2. Night of the Ripper galleys. Unbound. 121 sheets, two pages per sheet, single sided. Signed by Bloch. No corrections. 3. Night of the Ripper galleys. Unbound. 121 sheets, two pages per sheet, single sided. Likely editor's copy or similar. Various notes, mostly typed. One note points out in whose hand the three different inks are. A number of annotations are in Bloch's hand. It appears that Bloch had opted to add chapter introductions with relevant details from across the globe and history and has indicated where they should be inserted. There are a handful of corrections by Bloch too. 4. Autograph mss of Bloch's chapter introductions (historical events contrasting the Ripper's murders). 47 notes. Maybe 3,000-5,000 words, 16pp. 5. ~35 Typed chapter introductions (some of the notes in #4 were crossed out, so Bloch presumably never typed them up). 6. ~20 typed sheets with Bloch's corrections. Chapter outlines, story notes and (the majority) a timeline with details of the murders. The chronology is confusing. The galleys (#2 & #3) don't include the chapter intros, but the second galley (#2) has them inserted in typescript. The typescript (#1), however, has the chapter intros in. The (printed) galleys include the corrections made to the typescript. So I don't quite know how they were in the typescript, but not the proof, and then inserted into the proof. Each chapter intro is circled on the typescript so my assumption is that they were removed and then Bloch wanted them back in. They are a little incongruous within the story. [8446, Hyraxia Books].
