YEAR S' OK ON NOVEL
Of OLD SPANISH ERA
CRITICAL EDITION OF OLD
BOOK TO BE PUBLISHED
THIS MONTH
USED THREE MANUSCRIPTS
Texts Found in Madrid Archive
Used in Preparation of 'El
Libro del Cualler Zifar'
As a result of research covering
a period well over twenty years and
representing an outstanding
achievement of its kind, the first
part of a two-volume, critical edi-
tion by Prof. Charles P. Wagner,
professor of romance languages, of
the earliest known Spanish novel,
"El Libro del Cauallero Zifar" or
"El Libro delnCauallero de Pios,"
is now in the final stages of prepa-
ration and will be published with-
in the next three weeks. This first
volume, which contains the text of
the early work, is not yet bound,
but has left the printer as unbound'
copies of the book are proving very
popular with an advanced class of
graduate students which is being
conducted by Professor Wagner
during the Summer Session. '
Although this is not the first edi-
tion, of the old work, it is by far
the most complete, being based up-
on the three extant manuscripts of
the medieval tale, the oldest of
which was unknown until it was
brought to light by the investiga-
tions of Professor Wagner.
Working on a clue which he
found in a note, Professor Wagner
earthed in the archives of the li-
brary a manuscript dating from
the fourteenth century, the earliest
known copy of the old romance of
chivalry. After this discovery there
followed years of intermittent la-
bor, the task being carried along
