"Kismet", Partial Holograph Manuscript, Signed.


Fifteen lined 8 1/2 x 11 sheets, written in ink on the rectos only, in Merriman's hand, with several holograph revisions, about 4200 words. This is about the last 45% of his short story "A Small World", perhaps first published in the posthumous collection "Tomaso's Fortune and Other Stories", 1904, though it may have appeared earlier in a magazine. In addition to the name, the "Tomaso's Fortune" version bears some other differences from this manuscript. Hugh Stowell Scott (1862-1903) began writing under the Merriman pseudonym in 1889. He wrote nearly 20 novels, mostly historical fiction. His books were very popular, "The Sowers" (1896) alone having thirty editions, but he shunned personal publicity and his true identity was not well known (Thomas Seccombe in DNB). Chipped a little at some corners, pin/staple holes in one corner, a vertical fold. In Very Good condition.
