Babe Ruth's Book Deal

An interesting bit of historical contracting is on sale at eBay: the original 1947 publishing contract for Babe Ruth's autobiography "as told to" Robert Considine.   The contract itself isn't famous, but the typewritten changes and interlineations on the standard form allow you to see the various points of negotiations in a way that a modern signed contract can't.

You can read it online, but you'll probably have to pay a fair amount to own it.
