    Four Corrected Typescript Pages by John Le Carré

    John Le Carré [Pseudonym for David Cornwell]. Four Typescript Pages with His Manuscript Corrections. [N.p., n.d., ca. 1968]. Four quarto leaves, rectos only. Approximately 11 x 8.5 inches. On plain typing paper. Each page with editing and notes, some extensive. Minor toning, two leaves neatly trimmed at upper left corner, else fine.
    From the provenance letter (accompanying this lot), the previous owner states that "The accompanying four pages of novel typescript with annotation and correction were given to me in 1968 by David Cornwell ("John Le Carré") when he was visiting Prince of Wales College (Charlottetown, P. E. I. Canada) and was my guest there for several days. My understanding was that these pages were from an earlier draft of the novel he was then working on - perhaps A Small Town in Germany or The Naïve and Sentimental Lover. Le Carré was on a Canada Council tour of Canada and we at P. W. C. were his first audience and hosts."
