ROTJedi novelization - Luke first appears


Original handwritten manuscript. This is the first page following the prologue, in which Luke appears, incognito, inserting his light saber into R2D2 - though we won't realize that until Artoo tosses it back to him for the fight and escape at the sand barges. This page is also the first ever transliteration of R2D2's language - "Vrrrr-dit dweet?" The document is accompanied by a letter of provenance which includes some thoughts on my use of transliteration in the novel, and the pushback I got for that technique. Also includes my signature, date of May the Fourth, and my college ID for further verification.
