Abstract :
This paper is dedicated to a substantial preparatory manuscript of La Nouvelle Héloïse by J.-J. Rousseau, which the author of the article recently rediscovered in a private collection in Paris. This 200-pages-long manuscript is filled with corrections and rewritings and represents an intermediary stage of the third part of the novel. It was never submitted to a scientific analysis before now. This paper presents the manuscript’s main features and explains its importance regarding the interpretation of this work. It also questions the possible ways used to publish such materials in the forthcoming genetic edition.
