Most widely held works by M. C Seymour
The travels of Sir John Mandeville, with three narratives in illustration of it: The voyage of Johannes de Plano Carpini, The journal of Friar William de Rubruquis, The journal of Friar Odoric by John Mandeville( Book )

25 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in English and English, Middle and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first critical edition of the earliest and most important English translation of Mandeville's Travels. Its title, the 'Defective Version' derives from the loss of the second quire in the Anglo-French 'Insular' manuscript, or its antecedent, from which it was translated, containing part of the description of Egypt. Despite this loss of text, the Defective Version established itself as the dominant form of the work in England, and was perpetuated in the printed editions of the text until 1725." "The new edition is based on examination of all the extant manuscripts of the Middle English text and its French source, and so makes possible a more informed assessment of all other English versions. The textual commentary is based on a fresh investigation of the sources, and offers details for the first time of the author's indirect reliance on Marco Polo for much of his Asian relation."--BOOK JACKET

Mediaeval lore from Bartholomew Anglicus by Bartholomaeus( Book )

5 editions published in 1975 in English and English, Middle and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The medieval treatise On the Properties of Things (De proprietatibus rerum) normally attributed to Bartholomaeus Anglicus, was actually written by Bartholomaeus de Glanvilla, a 13th century Franciscan monk living in Paris, who was also known as Bartholomaeus Anglicus (Bartholomew of England). On the Properties of Things is a type of proto-encyclopedia, covering a wide range of subjects including religion, sciences, and medicine. It was widely copied and read during the Middle Ages. With the advent of printing De proprietatibus rerum became an even more popular work of reference. This edition, the earliest in the Lane Library, was printed by Anton Koberger of Nuremberg in 1483. Prior to this printing there were seven other editions printed, beginning in 1472. The Lane copy is in a contemporary binding of blind-stamped pigskin over oak boards, rebacked.--J. Norman, 2006
