    Excerpt from A Treatise on the Astrolabe: Addressed to His Son Lowys by Geoffrey Chauceer, A. D. 1391 § 1. The existing MSS. of the "Astrolabe" are still numerous. I have been successful in finding no less than eighteen, sixteen of which I here describe. It is remarkable that, although many printed editions of the treatise have appeared, no first-class MS. has ever hitherto come under the notice of any one of the various editors. This point will appear more clearly hereafter. § 2. A. - MS. Dd. 3. 53 (part 2) in the Cambridge University Library. The "Treatise on the Astrolabie" begins at fol. 212 of the MS. considered as a whole, but the folios are now properly renumbered throughout the treatise, as in the present volume. The MS. is of vellum, and the writing clear and good, with a great number of neatly drawn diagrams, which appear wherever the words "lo here this figure occur in the text. This MS. I have made the basis of the text, and it is followed with minute exactness except when notice to the contrary is given in the Critical Notes. Wherever any change of even slight importance is made, notice is drawn to the alteration by the use of square brackets. This MS. is of considerable importance.
