London, Ballantine Books / St Martin's Press, n.d. [c1976]. Manuscript. Unbound. Very good condition. Agency Xerox of Editor's Typescript. The typescript has a note to the top of the box saying 'to Les Flood Carnell Agency, London'. The box label states 'Xerox of ms, edited for publication by Ballantine Books [then handwritten] and St Martin's Press'. The first sheet has an inscription 'Judy- My comments are in the margins. Mostly details. Owen'. Judy is presumably Judy-Lynn Del Rey who worked at Ballantine at the time, Owen is presumably Owen Lock who was also one of the editors there (though perhaps Del Rey's assistant at the time?). Numerous corrections throughout, though of course, in facsimile. The first sheet also notes the name change from The Seekers to Gateway. Presumably only a couple of copies were made of the original typescript. Gateway was first published in Galaxy just before the publication of the book. An interesting item. The box has split at all folds and is grubby and worn, but it's mostly protected the typescript. [8685, Hyraxia Books].
