This is an accurate and fully annotated text of the first romance in the Palmerin cycle, which was translated from French into English by Anthony Munday. This edition is scrupulously faithful to the source text and textual notes are packed with information on chivalric rituals, romance motifs, and parallels with contemporary works. The annotations show the differences with the French version of Palmerin that Munday was using as his source, and the notes reveal a clear strategy behind Munday’s intervention on the text.

Edited with an introduction, critical apparatus, notes, and glossary by Jordi Sánchez-Martí.
