    John Jakes. There's No Vinism Like Chauvinism -- Original Typed Manuscript. [n.d., circa 1965].

    8.5 by 11-inch sheets. 77 pages.

    First published in the April 1965 issue of Amazing Stories and later collected in The Best of John Jakes in 1977. Offered here is the complete, original manuscript with handwritten notes and changes. Also included are the two original publisher's mock-up pages with artwork for the story's title page and two sets of publisher's sheets representing the version that was finally published. The condition of this group is very good.

    Known primarily for his historical novels, much of Jakes' early writing was for the science fiction pulps. He was a prolific short story writer, even into the 1970s, and many of his works were first published in Amazing Stories. This lot provides both a glimpse into pulp magazine production as well as an opportunity to obtain Jakes manuscript material which is rarely offered. From the Frank Collection.
