Supplementary lives in some manuscripts of the Gilte legende by Jacobus( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and English, Middle and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Gilte Legende was translated into English in 1438 from Jean de Vignay's Legende doree (composed ca. 1333-40), itself a close translation of Jacobus de Voragine's Legende aurea, completed about 1267 and one of the central texts of the Middle Ages." "The Gilte Legende survives in eight manuscripts, three of which contain additional material, mostly consisting of Lives of saints, from, or related to, Britain. Many of these derive from the South English Legendary (with some use of other sources), but have been converted into prose from verse." "The twenty-six supplementary Lives include Thomas Becket, Edmund of Abingdon, Frideswide, Edward the Confessor, Erkenwald, Augustine of Canterbury, Brendan and Winifred, and, from further afield, Faith, Barbara and Jerome. Almost all of the texts have not previously been published." "Also edited are a tract on 'What the Church betokeneth', explaining some of the Church's symbolism and its services, together with a treatise setting out the indulgences available to pilgrims in each of the churches in Rome."--BOOK JACKET

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 )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 319 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."--Jacket
