Spanish Grail Fragments, 1924
Kessinger Publishing, Aug 1, 2003 - Literary Criticism - 404 pages
1924. Contains both Vols. 1 and 2. El libro de Josep Abarimatia la estoria de Merlin Lancarote. Volume 1 - Texts; Volume 2 - Commentary. Early manuscripts, dating as far back as the 14th century, figure in this interesting edition of the Spanish Grail Fragments edited from the unique manuscript. Volume 1 contains, besides the actual Spanish texts, introductory and supplementary chapters. In these the author extends his former investigations concerning the relation of the Fragments to other versions of the legend such as El Balador del sabio Merlin and La Demanda del Sancto Grail. Volume 2 is in English and contains the most extensive commentary that has yet been published on a single Old Spanish text. The notes are of a text critical, grammatical and lexicographic nature, and form a valuable contribution to the knowledge of Old Spanish.
