The Man Who Shot Lewis Vance
New York: St. Martin's Press, 1986. Final corrected manuscript for Stuart Kaminsky's novel, "The Man Who Shot Lewis Vance," ultimately published in book form by St. Martin's Press in 1986. Included is a typed letter signed by Pam Hoenig, assistant editor at St. Martin's Press, on the publisher's stationery, dated January 27, 1986, addressed to Kaminsky and confirming that the manuscript is enclosed for addition to what she describes as his "vast archive."
Mechanical duplication typescript, with profuse holograph corrections by the author in blue ink throughout, and proofreader's corrections in red pencil. Other kinds of corrections, such as whited-out text with ribbon copy typeovers, are present as well.
251 pages. Very Good overall, with some curl and light wear at the corners.
