Gesta Romanorum (Hystorie notabiles atque magis principales collecte ex gestis romanorum et quibusdam aliis notabilibus gestis cum moralizacionibus eorundem). Utrecht: Nicolaus Ketelaer and Gerardus de Leempt, 1474. —Beautiful hand-illuminated incunabulum.

Gesta Romanorum: Entertaining moral stories invented by the monks as a fire-side recreation and commonly applied in their discourses from the pulpit: whence the most celebrated of our own poets and others have extracted their plots. Translated from the Latin with preliminary observations and copious notes by the Rev. Charles Swan. London: George Routledge & Sons, 1905.

A Record of Ancient Histories: Entituled in Latin, Gesta Romanorum. Discoursing of sundry Examples, for the advancement of Vertue, and the abandoning of Vice. Very pleasant in Reading, and profitable in practice. London, 1689. —The Histories are printed in blackletter type, with the Arguments in roman. This is one of the latest blackletter books we have found in English, but seems too early to be a blackletter revival. Google’s OCR is, of course, utterly flummoxed.

The Old English Versions of the Gesta Romanorum: edited for the first time from manuscripts in the British Museum and University Library, Cambridge; with an introduction and notes. By Sir Frederic Madden. London: Printed for the Roxburghe Club, 1838. —The language is Middle English rather than the Anglo-Saxon for which we now reserve the name Old English.

H. Herrtage, B.A. London: Early English Text Society, 1879.
