Jean Cocteau Papers, 1905-1959 (bulk 1910-1928).

The personal and professional life of French poet, novelist, artist, playwright, and filmmaker Jean Cocteau is reflected in the Carlton Lake Collection of Cocteau's manuscripts, correspondence, personal papers, notebooks, drawings, financial and legal documents, and third-party papers. The bulk of the collection is a large portion of Cocteau's personal archives that was sold without his permission to a French dealer in 1935. The collection includes manuscripts or proofs of most of Cocteau's writings until about 1928, a period that encompassed some of his best work, including Le Cap de Bonne-Espérance, Le coq et l'arlequin, Les enfants terribles, Le grand écart, Le livre blanc, Les mariés de la tour Eiffel, La noce massacrée, Le Potomak, and Thomas l'imposteur.
