BATES, H.E. Original Autograph Manuscript: the Handkerchief Tree

1970.

Seven pages of plain quarto sized paper, written on rectos only. Approx. 1000 words, with occasional corrections. Cover page inscribed by Bates, "For Frank and Joan: - just a little return for a wonderful day. Let me have the typescript back one day at your convenience (sorry! I meant when you have time!) with love HE. June 23 / 70". With a photocopy of the typescript. Also with a letter from Frank Rodwell, thanking Bates for this manuscript and for the typescript of "The Triple Echo", commenting how he would have it bound with the manuscript and also asking "Do you not feel, as I do, that The Triple Echo would make a wonderful film" (it was filmed in 1972 staring Glenda Jackson and Oliver Reed).

An essay published in In Living (December 1970) in which Bates relates a visit to a nearby garden containing two specimens of the Handkerchief Tree, and tells the tale of its rediscovery in 1899 by Ernest Henry Wilson.
