It is absolutely the first copy and the corrections and additions that have been put upon it in long hand in pencil and ink were done by Mr. Hubbard himself."

The draft is laid-in a chemise and inserted in a custom slipcase. Fine condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
