Incomplete draft of Burgess's stage adaptation of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac.

Scope and Content

Pages 1-30 (?Act One?) of the draft only. The original typescript (of which this is a photocopy) apparently included corrections by Burgess.

Page 1 includes a drawing of a profile of Cyrano's face by Burgess.
