a 277-page typescript titled "Tales from the Shenandoah"
ca. 1961 - 28x21cm, 277 pp., Weighs 1200 grams. This is a typescript of an unpublished novel dealing with the nascent civil rights movement authored by the anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist [ and Ezra Pound disciple] Eustace Mullins. Pagination runs (2) [title & 1- page synopsis];1-9; 9-96; 116 -117; 122-126; 138-300; 302. Incomplete. Appears to be comprised of several different versions of this manuscript with varying paginations- uncertain if this was Mullins edited version or if this is incomplete. This appears to be among the final drafts, as an earlier version included Ezra Pound as a character, which Pound reportedly objected to and Mullins extensively revised. Mullins submitted this to the publisher of his Pound biography, who declined. ["a novel about a small town in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, consist of ten chapters, each one a vignette in the larger story. 300,000 words, The central figure is the Reverend Henry West, who becomes involved in sit-in demonstrations with Negroes, and falls in love with a 14-year-old mulatto girl, the illegitimate daughter of the Judge of the Supreme Court. The lives of all of the characters are intertwined and lead to a vigorous climax.,." - synopsis].
