If you love books I suggest taking a look through the archive at the British Library, which houses gems such as this typescript second draft of The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.

This edition sees Plath alter the original working title 'Diary of a Suicide' and the pseudonym 'Freida Lucas' to 'Victoria Lucas'. 

A fascinating manuscript and a must see for Plath fans
