Dear all,

I am hoping someone may be able to assist me in locating a copy of a manuscript I am seeking...

Timothy d'Arch Smith has a bibliography of work including an item, as follows,

J. Butcher (a pseudonym). _The Bare Bummed Boys_.

It was a "Soho manuscript", a roneoed/mimeographed typescript of the 1960s. It was a parody of Frank Richards's _Greyfriars_ (Billy Bunter) school stories, with illustrations adapted from the _Magnet_ and _Gem_ periodicals, where these stories first appeared.

The date of this item was possibly after 1965, when an author whose real name was J. Butcher wrote a book on Frank Richards and the _Greyfriars_ school stories. Mr d'Arch Smith's collection does not have a copy of this item, nor is any holding listed in any library collection. Does anybody have, or know or somebody who has, a copy of this item?

This request is being made for scholarly purposes.

I can be contacted at
