Provenance: Sten G. Lindberg, who has made an annotation in ink on first page to the effect that he had been entrusted by Uno Willers in August of 1960 with distributing this translation to the members of the Swedish Academy (”Sten G. Lindberg genom [Uno] Willers förmedling delaktig av en distribution inom Sv. Akademien 20.8.1960.”)
Together with a partly illegible handwritten note, apparently recording a telephone conversation with Dag Hammarsköld, who had called (Lindberg or Willers) during a pause in a session of the Security Council with instructions not to distribute an earlier version of his translation, as he had reworked it. The present version had been posted to Sweden by August 12th, and was distributed to Hammarskjöld’s colleagues in the Swedish Academy on August 28. Later that autumn, the Academy announced that Saint-John Perse had been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
