Scope and Content

Manuscripts and typescripts of various draft versions of 'Grandpapa's Folly and the Woodworm-Bookworm' by Ursula Moray Williams. The book was printed with selected words omitted from the text, these words having been 'stolen' by the bookworm to write his own story. Readers were encouraged to fill in the blanks by selecting the appropriate word from the bookworm's story, which appeared at the end of the book.
