Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1919 edition.

Cook has urged the Menagier de Paris as an intermediary, and thence would date the tale after 1390.
