Schulz, W., Das Handschriftenverhaltnis des Covenant Vivian (Book Review)

Weeks, Raymond

This volume includes a discussion and classification of the nine manuscripts available of the Covenant Vivien (the author's spelling Vivian is an affectation. The better title, as Mr. A. Terracher has shown, is Chevalerie Vivien). In the course of his argument, the author has to cite many passages from the MSS. It is noted with regret that these citations are full of errors. He was evidently set to copying the MSS; without due previous training in paleography. If this supposition be correct, he is less to be blamed than those who allowed him to undertake such difficult work.
