London, c1969. Manuscript. Very good. Unbound typescript of Groves' second and final novel. Published in 1969 by Robert Hale. On Carnell headed paper, though this ms has amendments throughout presumably in the author's hand given the content. The assumption being that the present ms played a part in the book's production, rather than just being a form of advance copy sent to prospective publishers. 325pp rectos only. A little general wear overall. [9221, Hyraxia Books].
