This is the fourth and final volume of the series of English versions of Mandeville's Travels published by the EETS. The Egerton Version was previously only available in a limited edition of 1889, and represents a unique response to the text, surviving in a single manuscript, but combining two earlier versions, one of which is now lost. The Egerton text was made in Yorkshire, before 1400 by a Benedictine monk, having access to a large scholastic library. It offers important textual insights into the dissemination of this enormously influential and widely read collection of travellers' tales.
