[Manuscript]: "Death at the Chase"
[1969]. First. Typed manuscript bound in red cloth. Folio. Fine. Signed by the author on the title page. Mostly ribbon, and some carbon leaves, many corrections in type, a few in ink or pencil. Accompanied by a Typed Letter Signed and an Autograph Letter Signed from the author (both using his given name, J.I.M. Stewart) responding to an inquiry about purchasing some of his manuscripts, and offering this and another, A Family Affair. One of the TLS is particularly interesting in that it reveals: "There are no Michael Innes manuscripts in any strict sense. I work on a typewriter, revise the single copy thus produced to an extent requiring a certain amount of sisors [sic] and paste, and have a couple of xerox copies made of the result. But it is only of a few of the later novels that anything of this sort is extant. I could send you a paste-up of either DEATH AT THE CHASE or A FAMILY AFFAIR (PICTURE OF GUILT) and suggest that for either of them seventy-five dollars would be a fair price." Accompanied by a canceled check Signed by Stewart for $75. Thus, according to the author, one of very few of his existing manuscripts. .
