The Writing on the Walls [Off the Wall]

N.p. N.p. Circa 1979. Charles Willeford's original, heavily hand-corrected submission to his one-time publisher, Pegasus Rex, for "The Writing on the Walls," eventually re-titled "Off the Wall." Willeford's name, address, and phone number are in blue holograph ink at the top of the title page, and each of the eighteen chapters (each grouped with paper clips at the top left) have numerous corrections in the author's hand. Chapters 2, 16, 17, and 18 are the original typescript, the remaining chapters are copies (but with holograph hand corrections). All told, Willeford's own assemblage of his final manuscript for the book.

8.5 x 11 inch sheets, bound by paper clips separately by chapter, Very Good to Near Fine overall. In a custom quarter-leather clamshell box.
