Excerpt from The Seven Sages of Rome, Edited From the Manuscripts: With Introduction, Notes, and Glossary No less than nine Middle English manuscripts of The Seven Sages of Rome have survived to the present time. Yet only two of these manuscripts have until now been published, - one the Auchinleck (A), by Weber, in 1810; the other, the Cambridge MS. Dd. I. 17 (D), by Wright, in 1845. The need for a new edition of The Seven Sages, then, is obvious. And this need has long been recognized. It is now more than twenty years since Professor Kolbing announced that he would undertake to edit the entire volume of Middle English manuscripts of the poem; later the Early English Text Society announced an edition of the Cotton MS. (C) - the basis of the present edition - by the lamented Dr. Robert Morris; and still more recently the Scottish Text Society has promised an edition of the Asloan MS. (As) by Professor Varnhagen. I should not omit to say also that the Early English Text Society has for several years advertised as in preparation an edition of C by Dr. Squires, and that it is now seeking an editor for the whole of Balliol MS. 354, in which B occurs. My purpose to edit the Cotton MS. I first announced in 1898, in my dissertation, A Study of the Romance of The Seven Sages with Special Reference to the Middle English Versions? I am glad now, after eight years of necessarily intermittent effort, to see my promise made good. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
