About this Item

A four page original typescript for an introduction to the Woodford Press edition of Clement Wood's FLESH AND OTHER STORIES (1949). With numerous corrections and annotations by the author. Although attributed to Woodford, the introduction was actually written by Clement Wood. Included is a carbon copy of a typed letter from Wood to Aaron "Moe" Moses Shapiro, the book's editor at Jack Woodford Press. In the letter, Wood notes that "I've known and studied Jack Woodford's style and attitude for years, and I think it [sic] give it fairly here After all, his books on writing give me plenty of orchids". There is also a 3-page carbon copy of an earlier version of the introduction and 5 pages of notes used in the preparation of the manuscript (one of the pages has a typed note from "Moe" urging Wood to "Go ahead and write the preface or introduction"). FLESH was originally published privately in 1929 and reissued in 1931 by Panurge Press. It was a collection of soft-core stories - each story describing a tabooed kind of consensual sex.
