[Manuscript]: Rooster Crows for Day
[1945]. Manuscript. Approximately 565 loose sheets comprised of roughly an equal number of typed and holograph pages. All slightly toned with edge wear, very good. Burman's manuscript for his 1945 novel about a Mississippi steamboat captain's journey on the Congo, with a multitude of corrections and revisions throughout. Accompanying the manuscript is an Autograph Note Signed from Burman to his book editor delivering the finished work. Burman, born in Covington, Kentucky in 1896, published numerous novels set in the South, with many centered on life along the Mississippi. His earlier novel, Steamboat Round the Bend, was the basis for the 1935 film of the same name starring Will Rogers. A world traveler and veteran of both World War I and World War II, Burman was among the first correspondents to reach the Free French capital of Brazzaville in independent French Equatorial Africa during WWII, an experience that greatly informed this story. With a supplied copy of the first edition of Rooster Crows for Day (New York: E.P. Dutton 1945). .
