Scope and Content

Typescript draft of 'Five on a Hike Together' (Hodder & Stoughton, 1951), the tenth book in Enid Blyton's Famous Five series. The typescript bears occasional ink annotations in Blyton's hand, which mostly correct minor typing errors, although there are also some manuscript insertions and revisions of text. The typescript also bears occasional typesetting instructions for the printer in pencil. Some cutting and pasting of text is evident towards the end of the typescript, and only a partial fragment of the final page has survived, the rest apparently having been torn off and lost.
