  • Date: Cent. xiii (1250).
  • Physical Description: Double columns of 46 lines. In a good clear hand (English), with a large number of excellent drawings.
  • Provenance: Marked H 12. No. 326. The volume is illustrated by 152 pictures in fine outline, lightly washed with colours, green, red, and blue - green being perhaps the most conspicuous. The work is excellent: and the style of both drawing, colouring and writing inclines me to hazard the conjecture that the birthplace of the volume was St Alban’s Abbey. The frames of the drawings are edged (alternately, roughly speaking) with green and pink.

  • The Romance of Alexander, in French verse, by Eustache (or Thomas) of Kent.
    The following paragraphs are epitomized from a MS. account by M. Paul Meyer drawn up in, 1871 (kept with MS).
    Two other MSS. of this poem are known.
    1. The only complete copy, formerly in the Library of the Due de la Vallière (no.2702), now Bibl. Nat. Fonds de la Vallière 45.
    On this see Legrand d'Aussy, Notices et Extraits, V. 121.
    Weber, Metrical Romances, I. xxv, copies him.
    This MS. closely resembles ours in the writing and the miniatures.
    2. Durham Cathedral Library, C. IV. 27 B, without miniatures: mutilated. See P. Meyer in Archives des Missions, 1867.
    The poem is partly original and partly copied from the Roman d'Alexandre of Lambert le Tort and Alexander of Bernay (ed. Michelant, Stuttgart, 1846). Speaking broadly, ff. 1-7, 39 (co1. 4)-46, of this Ms. represent the borrowed portions.
    The author of the poem in this MS. calls himself Eustache: in the Paris MS. the reading is Thomas. The Durham MS. has a lacuna at the point.

    To these remarks of M. Meyer I add the following notes.
