Handwritten 7-page manuscript of Gerard Reve!
These are three versions Reve wrote of the Verantwoording that was eventually published in 1986 with the book ‘Brieven aan Ludo P.’ Above the last version, “eindversie” is written and this was also used at the publication of the book.
The first version comprises 2 sheets. The first sheet is dated 27-12-1985, the second sheet is dated 31-12-1985. There are many deletions and corrections in this version.
The second version comprises 2 sheets. The first sheet is dated 02-01-1986, the second sheet is dated 04-01-1985. It is signed “Advent 1985 G.R.” This version also has many deletions.
The third and last version consists of 3 sheets, all dated ‘zondag 05-01-1986’. At the top of all three sheets the word “eindversie” is circled. It is signed “La Grace, Advent 1985, G.R.” This version was eventually used for the book ‘Brieven aan Ludo P.’
Condition: good. A total of 7 sheets, with text in ink in Gerard Reve's characteristic handwriting. On the back of the first sheet, at the top right corner, is the handwritten date “La Grace 25 july '85.” The sheets have some small scattered coffee stains (see pictures).
