Text del Xv Segle Reproduhit Novament del Codex de la Biblioteca nacional de Madrid Per R. Miquel Y. Planas ab Estudis y Notes del Mateix y De Anfos Par. A chivalric romance which first appeared in the late 1800s in Barcelona, supposedly from a manuscript book of the mid-1400s, although some doubt has recently been cast on that provenance. The Planas and Par translation with extensive notes was an important landmark and this beautifully produced book is a scarce example of same. A very nice copy. ; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
