Chapter Summary

This edition of John Stewart of Baldynneis' 'Roland Furious' has been prepared with undergraduate readers in mind This volume is very clearly written in Italianate hand with a very fine pen.It is reasonable to suppose that the author himself scribed the volume as the writing varies in size,pressure and quality throughout The earlier cants are on the whole in a larger hand than the later ones although variations can be seen within the cants themselvesThe lines in which the text sits are in a dull red ink,also used for the titles and certain prominent words and phrases throughout the text.Each page has a double set of red ink lines round the perimeter.Information within the poem itself aids any attempt to date the manuscript.The omissions are as significant as the insertions.

Keywords: Editorial Policy; insertions; Italianate; omissions; perimeter; scribed; undergraduate
