Chapter Summary

Most of the manuscripts in this chapter were identified by Bartolomeo Capasso and his successors. It includes all copies mentioned by previous scholars of the Cronaca (whether actually containing the Cronaca or not) as well as the two hitherto known only to scholars of other works contained in these manuscripts. Of these nineteen copies, twelve are important textual witnesses, and two more, though no longer available for consultation, are incomplete copies of the Cronaca that can be known now only through earlier scholars' descriptions of them. Another pair is copy of early printed editions, which are further indices of the work's diffusion but of no use in establishing the text. Of the remaining three, two are not copies of the Cronaca at all but later adaptations of it, while the last has never been identified sufficiently to permit confirmation of its existence.
