Page views of MS-HRC-SB-4-2-3 from Krapp's Last Tape / La Dernière Bande 'Krapp's Last Tape'. 

Typed manuscript, signed, March 1958, 9 pp., 4to. 'Typescript III', so described in Beckett's hand at the top of the first page. With many autograph emendations and additions, a few doodles, and one mathematical calculation on the verso of the last page. The title now takes its published form and has been typed in (apparently later) at the beginning of the text. Beckett has added a few more details concerning the setting: e;g., 'April 1986' has been changed to 'a late evening in the nineteen eighties'. Inscribed, in blue ink, on the last page: 'for Jake Schwartz / Sam. Beckett / March 1958'.
