Manuscripts for Our Mutual Friend and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde return to London for the first time in over a century for Writing Britain: Wastelands to Wonderlands

The manuscripts for two of Britain's most celebrated literary works are to be on show in England for the first time as part of the British Library's next major exhibition, Writing Britain: Wastelands to Wonderlands. On loan from the Pierpont Morgan Library and Museum, neither manuscript has been in England for over 100 years, but both reveal stories about their makers.
