THE CHILL ROSS MACDONALD Kenneth Millar MANUSCRIPT HANDWRITTEN HOLOGRAPH FINE
1964. This is an archive of manuscript material from both the book and magazine versions of a key Macdonald novel, THE CHILL (1963-64). Consists of: 1. 83 holograph (handwritten) pages of early draft material for the novel, including several false starts. The working title at this point was "A Mess of Shadows." 2. A 218 page complete manuscript, consisting of 173 pages of heavily corrected carbon typescript with 45 pages of handwritten text interspersed. Also included are a handwritten title page and two pages of notes (one typed, one handwritten) titled "Revisions of The Chill." This is the working manuscript for Macdonald's condensed version of the novel which appeared in Cosmopolitan magazine. The typescript pages are from the original complete typescript and bear numerous deletions and emendations while the interspersed handwritten pages are textual bridges written by Macdonald especially for this version. 3. 108 page carbon typescript - with some handwritten corrections - titled: "The Chill (short version)". The finished retyped version of the above working manuscript. 4. A copy of the issue of Cosmopolitan magazine (Volume 155, Number 2) in which the condensed version of The Chill was published in August 1963. This is an important manuscript by this premier detective novelist, documenting Macdonald's method of composition - here a painstaking distillation of this full-length novel to its essence. See all 12 pictures. In fine quarter morocco, buckram folding case. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
