THE does not help us to discover who translated the Buik of Alexaander, for the author of the 'Ballet' is not named in either of>f the MSS which contain it. The two points which are sufficident to establish a common authorship for the texts are: (I) a large number of lines in the 'Ballet' are in close verbal agreement with the corresponding lines in the 'Buik': (2) (certain lines in the 'Ballet' which differ from the 'Buik' agreee with the French original of this, Longuyon's Vceux du Paon.. The parallel texts printed below will show clearly how matteers stand in respect of both these points. I give the 'Ballett' in full from the earlier Edinburgh MS', and on the oppossite page the corresponding lines from the 'Buik', or, when t this fails, from the French original. 1 The MS of Fordun's Chronicle, at th&e end of which the poein is found, was written either in 1447 or 1454, and tithe poem is in the same hand as the rest of the MS. The Rev. John Andeierson, of the Register House, has very kindly collated Laing's text not onhly with this MS., but also with the copy preserved in
