This is the fourth and final volume of the series of English versions of Mandeville's Travels published by the EETS. The Egerton Version was previously only available in a limited edition of 1889, and represents a unique response to the text, surviving in a single manuscript, but combining twoearlier versions, one of which is now lost. The Egerton text was made in Yorkshire, before 1400 by a Benedictine monk, having access to a large scholastic library. It offers important textual insights into the dissemination of this enormously influential and widely read collection of travellers'tales.
M. C. Seymour is the author of many studies of Mandeville, and has edited three of the other versions of the text, two for EETS and one for the Clarendon Press.
