I'll let Klar describe this one, since he sent it in.

Short version:  It's Jerry Siegel's 14 page summary of his and Joe's efforts to get "Superman" published.

That's pretty much it but it makes for fascinating reading (even with some bits missing) especially since it's from Jerry's own typewriter and based on his personal corespondence files.

This is belived to have been written to accompany an large size Treasurey Reprint of Superman 1 circa 1978.

I hope you all enjoy reading this story behind the story.
