This collection came from the estate of Gritta Weil, long-time editorial secretary at the Observer, who acted as editor for this book i) "Very rough, uncorrected, first draft". Printed sheets in ring binder. With a duplicate section of Chapter 13. With editorial pencil corrections and notes by Weil. ii) "Final version draft". Printed sheets with corrections and notes by Weil. Preserved in a foolscap box. iii) Print out of the final corrected version in ring binder. Included in the foolscap box with the Final Version Draft is a small collection of correspondence between Peter Ebert and Gritta Weil, some typed, some faxes (now fading), discussing corrections to the book. The books was eventually published as In this theatre of man's life : the biography of Carl Ebert by the Book Guild in Lewes in 1999. Carl Ebert was an actor, stage director and arts administrator, perhaps best remembered now as one of the founding lights of Glyndebourne Opera.
