TitleUntitled manuscript
DescriptionDraft manuscript pages of the first part of 'The BFG'.
The central character is called 'Jody' in this draft. It is accompanied by several pages of Dahl's hand-written notes and a photocopied typescript list, arranged alphabetically, of all the unusual words used in later drafts of the story. Presumably the word list was mis-filed here, as the BFG does not use any of the words on the list in this draft. There are 283 of these words in total.
The image shown is the first page in the list of words.
Written in pencil on yellow paper.
