Excerpt from An Alphabet of Tales, Vol. 1: An English 15th Century Translation of the Alphabetum Narrationum of Etienne De Besançon; From Additional Ms. 25, 719 of the British Museum; A-H

Iyords and letters which have been obliterated or worn away from the ms. Are restored conjecturally in brackets; words and letters inadvertently omitted by the Writer of the ms. Are also conjecturally supplied in brackets, but in italic, to distinguish them from those for which the ms. Leaves a space. Capitals have been given to names of persons and places, and have been left. In some common nouns as they stand in the ms; modern punctuation has been adopted throughout. Scribal errors are corrected by footnotes. Signs standing in earlier mss. For final -e are represented by a small stroke curved to the right or left, only the diminutive curl after short r has been left out.

A list of errata. Will be printed with Part II, also an Index to the Tales.
