Original Manuscript Dimemma

Recommended Posts

Hi all.


First post from a lifetime reader of pretty much anything & with zero knowledge regarding the buying & selling of unusual items.


Three years ago, a good friend of mine passed away & one of the items left to me is Dudley Pope's original, typewritten (but with copious handwritten amendments) manuscript for his novel "The Black Ship" complete with a personally dedicated first edition of that novel.


How (& who do I contact) to find out if this is of any value - historical or otherwise?

Hi, what a lovely and special thing for your friend to leave you! I think, if it was me, I’d contact a specialist book seller. Somewhere like Sotherans or Hay on Wye Booksellers. I assume you don’t want to sell it though so probably worth making that clear, but that’s the easiest way I can think of to contact an expert!
