I would love to either read or know about that one too
Surprisingly, very little is known about this early script/treatment written by Ed Summer and Roy Thomas.
Summer once told me he had donated his only copy to the Margaret Herrick Library (which is located in Beverly Hills). And if you do search on their online catalog, there is indeed a 77 pages CONAN treatment (first draft revised, dated from May 9, 1977) available in their collection.
Unfortunately, I do not live in California! And the Library seems to have a very strict policy of not photocopying any screenplay of theirs under any circumstances...
So I guess the best and only chance you/we have to learn more about this pretty elusive first treatment is that someone just go there and read it, take some notes, then post his own review in here!
