The End of the Last Dragon and Other Tales - A Christmas Manuscript
NA. A beautiful manuscript for Christmas 1952. This is one of several similar manuscripts - that were written under three pseudonyms - The Monkey, The Tweet, and The Dormouse (who seems to be Dutch). The manuscripts were obviously sent out as a Christmas gift / message - but there are no clues as to who they are from or who they were for. Each is typed with illustrations on almost every leaf (to recto only). The manuscript has been sewn together, but is without binding. There is a little marking to the cover, but the contents are in excellent condition. We have created a cardboard cover to protect the manuscript.
This manuscript contains: Dedication (1); Christmas Bells (1); Illustrated Title (1); Autumnal Memories of Bonn. (3); Romance and Reality (15); Worldly Thanks (1); The Bog Monster (6); The Bright Idea (4); The End of the Last Dragon (5); The Dachshound and the Skeleton Man (11); What's in a Name? (6). A total of 54 pages. It lacks an initial picture or poem - listed to the contents page as "The Rescue."
