Wow, pretty awesome. I'd love to read the 'Black Gold' pages with the beginning his so-called autobiography.

When I visited the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame in 2001 to view their Featured Hendrix display. I was suprised to see that some of the lyrics they had on display were facsimile's not originals. This auction appears to have some similar to them.

If EH doesn't have originals to put on display, then they apparently do not exist anymore. So what this seller has are apparently the only surviving copies of this stuff.

That crumpled up piece of paper with the early Purple Haze lyrics was on display at the RNR HOF.

But I would hate be the buyer who bought them, and years later have the originals turn up.
