|一般注記||"The illustrations are, of course, the point of principal interest ... " the text, "a French versification of the Latin prose life of St. Edward by Aibred of Rievauix," which was little more than an abridgment and paraphrase of the life by Osbert of Clare, was printed in full by Dr. Luard in 1858 in the Rolls series of Chronicles and memorials, with a literal translation. The present editor believes the manuscript to be the "work of Matthew Paris, carried out at St. Alban's Abbey under his supervision, not by his own hand." cf. Pref.
