Incomplete draft of Burgess's translation and adaptation (for the stage) of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac.

Scope and Content

The draft consists of two pages from Act 1 and thirteen pages from Act 4 only. The original typescript (of which this is a photocopy) included handwritten corrections by Burgess.
