n.p. [Minneapolis?], 1943. Original corrected 229-page typescript of Manfred's first novel, likely used as the setting copy by the publishers, Webb Publishing Company of Saint Paul, with numerous typographical notes as to typesize, fonts, picas, etc. and also containing many what we assume to be last minute corrections to the text proper by Manfred himself - a couple of hundred instances where the typescript differs from the work as published. Also, a 6-page corrected typescript of the copy used for the dust jacket, also a setting copy, but with no corrections by Manfred. Also, page proofs for the same, tall 8vo, 129 leaves printed on rectos only, with extensive annotations throughout by the editior and printer, including the amending of a number of words and phrases in the text. Also, a first edition of the book, 8vo, pp. , 226; fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. This copy inscribed "For Paul C. Hillestad 'our' first book together. Frederick Feikema Manfred." Hillestad was Manfred's editor at Webb.
