Anglo-Saxon Riddles of the Exeter Book/Bibliographical Note
There have been five editions of the Riddles in the last fifty years, and a number of learned articles—those which I have found most useful are cited in the appropriate places.
Wyatt, A. J. Old English Riddles, Boston and London, 1912. Pp. xxxix, 193. Small but with a good Introduction, spare notes, and a Glossary.
Trautmann, Moritz. Die Altenglischen Rätsel. Heidelberg, 1915. Pp. xix, 203. A condensed edition, with notes and Glossary.
Mackie, W. S. The Exeter Book, Part II. London, 1934. E.E.T.S. 194. Pp. 88–151, 190–91, 202–39. Text, with line-for-line translation on facing pages; no notes, no Glossary.
Krapp, George Philip, and Elliott Van Kirk Dobbie. The Exeter Book, New York, 1936. Pp. lxv–lxvii, 180–210, 224–25, 229–43, 321–52, 361 f., 366–82. Introduction, condensed notes, no Glossary.
Note: The editors have numbered the Riddles differently but all agree for Nos. 1–67, except that Tupper has the Quondam First Riddle as 1 and it is necessary to subtract one from his references; and Trautmann treats 1, 2, 3, as 1 and it is necessary to add two to his numbering. Also Trautmann and Krapp–Dobbie make two riddles of 68, 69. Wyatt omits the Latin riddle. Thus in tabular view:
With the translations above I have added in parentheses the numbering of the Krapp–Dobbie edition.
