Note from the translator


[The following translation is not printed without misgiving as the old provincial French terms used by the writer and the construction of some of the sentences are by no means clear, and the modern equivalents of some of the words are not identified even by French experts. I am much indebted to M. H. Gallice for the assistance he has given me in elucidating the meaning of several obscure passages and words, and also for the loan of the facsimile blocks of the remaining leaves of the only known printed copy of the book.]
