Manuscript archive for his final novel, TIME AND TIME AGAIN
Long Beach Ca ca. 1952 3 [Long Beach, Ca, ca. 1952-3]. 4to. A substantial archive, consisting of heavily corrected original and carbon typescripts, clean typescripts, and two sets of galleys (one corrected) as below. In grey cloth drop box with black leather label . Hilton's last novel, TIME AND TIME AGAIN, was published in the UK and the US in 1953, the year prior to his premature death while resident in California. The archive includes the following: a) a lot of working typescript drafts on various stocks, very heavily revised and corrected throughout in ink, totaling some five hundred or more leaves, quarto, paginated variously in different sequences, with scores of lettered and numbered inserts, representing preliminary drafts of the work through its conclusion, often featuring multiple variant drafts of certain sections; b) another contiguous typescript, 341 numbered leaves, plus many lettered inserts, more lightly worked over in ink by the author, but occasionally bearing substantial revisions and deletions; c) a relatively clean carbon typescript of the first part only, 158 leaves, bearing only a handful of corrections, bradbound in term-binder, with label, and author's handwritten name and address on title leaf; d) two sets of galleys: one set of long, untrimmed galleys, denoted the author's duplicate set, and a set of roughly trimmed page proofs, with the author's occasional corrections or revisions
