Written By: Alan Hindley
Brian J. Levy
Frederick W Langley

This is the first Old French-English dictionary of its kind to provide a
comprehensive reference tool for a broad range of English-speaking users
including students, scholars, philologists and historians. This manageable,
single-volume, dictionary is based on a large and varied number of texts up
to ca. 1350, starting from the "classics" of medieval French literature and
extending through all the genres: epic, romance, religious, moral, didactic
and allegorical texts, lyric poetry, drama, humor and satire, as well as
nonliterary historical, political and legal documents.
