The shorter English version is extant only as a fragment of 308 lines in a MS. at Vale Royal, and was edited by R.C.N. (i.e. R.C. Nichols) for the Roxburghe Club, London, 1873. The MS. is stated by editor to have been written about 1450. After relating Partinope's arrival in the enchanted city and his meeting with Melior, the text, without any break, proceeds to the morning of the third day of tournament, 1. 277 corresponding to 1. 10811 of the other version.
As all attempts at seen the MS. have proved unsuccessful, it has been reprinted from the Roxburghe Club edition. The facsimile of one page included in the volume permitted of a few corrections in the text.
