Scope and content

A carbon copy typescript, [1946], of the English translation of Yann Fouéré's 'Breton Nationalism - France and Germany'; it was published, anonymously, as Breton Nationalism (Cardiff: Welsh Nationalist Party, [1947]).
The text was translated from Fouéré's original French by his fellow Breton exile Hervé Le Helloco while both were living in Swansea (see Yann Fouéré, La Maison du Connemara ([?Spézet], 1995), p. 42). The typescript contains numerous minor emendations in ink; the text was revised further before publication, the concluding chapter (ff. 99-106) in particular was to be extensively rewritten. The preface and appendices are not included. The typescript has been given front and back covers showing a photograph of the Arc de Triomphe after the Liberation of Paris in August 1944, apparently taken from a magazine article (ff. i, 107).
