Scope and Content

Complete typescript draft of 'The Mystery of Holly Lane' (Methuen, 1953), the eleventh book in Enid Blyton's Five Find-Outers series. The typescript bears occasional ink annotations in Blyton's hand, mainly correcting typing errors, although there are some manuscript insertions and revisions of text. Some cutting and pasting is evident in the typescript, where blocks of re-typed text have been pinned into position on pages. In one place in the typescript, Blyton has also made a marginal note for the illustrator. The typed chapter titles appear to be later insertions, presumably added after the draft was finished.
