Excerpt from Amis And Amiloun: Zugleich mit der Altfranzosischen Quelle Die vorliegende publication soll meine Studien uber die sage von Amicus und Amelius zum abschluss bringen, indem sie nicht nur die selten gewordene Weber'sche ausgabe der englischen fassung durch eine neue, mit be-nutzung aller handschriften hergestellte, ersetzt, sondern auch die anglonormannische Version, die G. Paris erst kurzlich als malheureusement encore inedite bezeichnet hat, sowie die islandischen Rimur den fachgenossen zum ersten male zuganglich macht. Die erwagung, dass es manchen erwunscht sein konnte, dies fur das vergleichende Studium des im mittelalter so beliebten Stoffes wichtige material in einem handlichen bande vereinigt zu sehen, veranlasste mich, dem fur die Altenglische bibliothek im allgemeinen festzuhaltenden programm diesmal durch beifugung dieser zuthaten untreu zu werden. Die handschriften, welche ich in England und Schottland fur diesen zweck zu copiren hatte, sind mir mit gewohnter bereitwilligkeit zur Verfugung gestellt worden. Besonderen dank habe ich der grossherzoglichen bibliothek in Carlsruhe abzustatten, welche mir die benutzung des Cod.
