Translation notes

The translation was originally prepared by A. F. Johnson in the early 20th century;[1] it currently exists in a handful of typescripts, including one owned by the Howard de Walden Library (on permanent loan to the Wallace Collection). This typescript was photographed by Guy Windsor and then transcribed by Michael Chidester. Due to the library's terms of use, the photographs cannot be released directly.

Transcription rules

There are generally two ways of indicating emphasis on a typewriter: underlining and ALL-CAPS. To conform with web conventions, underlined passages have been changed to italics and ALL-CAPS have been changed to bold. I have made no effort to capture the whited-out deletions, and where the text has been corrected in the typescript, I have only included the corrected version. The exception to this is insertions above the line, which are rendered in superscript. When misspellings and punctuation errors are identified in the text, they are indicated by a [!] mark. Otherwise, this is a precise reproduction of the state of the typescript.

A future version of this article may include a revision of the translation that corrects these errors as well as some of Johnson's quirks (such as rendering certain Italian words in French rather than English).
