Notebook / diary

Scope and Content

The entries in this notebook / diary have mainly been made by Burgess, with the exception of several doodles (possibly) by Burgess's son, Andrew Burgess-Wilson (also known as Paolo Andrea).

The notebook has mainly been used by Burgess to draft adaptations of Giuseppe Gioacchino Belli's sonnets, which ultimately formed part of Burgess's novel ABBA ABBA. It also contains diary entries for 1 January 1974 - 7 January 1974; brief music score; and occasional doodles / drawings by Burgess.
