In the spring of 1928, the American journal, Transition, published a section of the beginning of André Breton's novel, Nadja, translated in English. Nancy Cunard, owner of The Hours Press and the millionaire mistress of Louis Aragon, financed the translation and the publication of an integral version which Breton conserved.
The partial typescript of Nadja in English consists of the first 83 pages in-4° with redactions and corrections conserved within an envelope of The Hours Press (publication of Nancy Cunard) entitled by the hand of André Breton: "Draft typescript Nadja, incomplete."
