Chapter Summary

This chapter presents manuscripts cited and used in this book. The only complete surviving copy of Cáin Lánamna is found in TCD 1316 pp. 53a4-59b14, numbered in Edward Lhuyd's hand. CL is printed on pp. 39a4-45a14 of the facsimile. The entire tract is printed in volume two of Binchy's Corpus iuris Hibernici. Theophilus O'Flanagan, in his Introduction to the facsimile, Best mentions some of the hands that he can identify, aside from the main scribes, with the caveat that it is not always easy to tell whether the change in hand is caused by a new person or a finer cut pen, and that the interlinear and marginal glosses are all later than the text hands. This chapter presents a description of all the hands that the author was able to discern based on his examination of the manuscript in August 2004 and May 2008.
