Ribbon-bound within a card folder of "Hughes Massie & Co" with their label on the front (some rubbing and mild discoloration to folder, with a short tear along the spine). Still, a fine manuscript. Nearly every page has neat ink notes or corrections in Christie's hand. It is rare to find complete Christie manuscripts.
