Level of progress: Text complete 50%.svg
Notes: Plain text version featuring Giles's footnotes and chapter headings; annotated and wikified version with chapter headings (not part of Geoffrey's text) omitted, and new footnotes referring to variant names, sources, analogues, and historical facts where relevant.


This appears to be an annotated version (ie. additional new markups have been added that were not in the original version: wikilinks, etc..) - please see Wikisource:Annotations, be sure to have a parallel plain-text version available. -- Stbalbach 23:32, 1 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Non-annotated versions are available at the two links listed under "source" - does that not count, or does the plain version have to be here at Wikisource? --Nicknack009 07:35, 2 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Plain text version, reproducing Giles complete with chapter headings and footnotes, added. --Nicknack009 22:27, 15 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, yeah the plain text has to be here at wikipedia. -- Stbalbach 13:25, 20 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Let's keep on eye on...[edit]

Griscom's edition (1929 I think, reprinted in the 70s), which should be in the public domain by now, or so I imagine. Cavila (talk) 06:47, 19 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]
