Juan Ruiz: Arcipreste de Hita: Libro de Buen Amor II
Espasa-Calpe here does a new edition of Ruiz' important work with a new editor. See my copies of their old edition under 1913/67. Here I have the first printing of just the second volume. I have later printings listed under 1974/84 for the first volume and 1974/81 for the second volume. The format is the same, except that a second apparatus criticus seems to have been added above the first. Was perhaps a new manuscript discovered? We again begin with stanza 892. There seems to be some additional textual material after the finish at stanza 1728. At the end there are two elements where there used to be three. There are still an index of words and proper names and a T of C for both volumes. What has dropped out is a list of refrains and proverbs in both volumes. For what I know about Libro de Buen Amor, see the translations done in 1933 by Kane and in 1970 by Mignani and Di Cesare.
