Two Spanish Verse Chap-Books: Romance de Amadis (c. 1515-19), Juyzio Hallado Y Trabado (c. 1510)by F. J. Norton, Edward M. Wilson, Norton F. J.
A facsimile edition of two probably unique, and undescribed before this books publication in 1969, early sixteenth-century Spanish verse chap-books, printed at Burgos and Salamanca between 1510 and 1520. Mr Norton and Professor Wilson provide a substantial introduction on their literary or bibliographical importance, and a supplementary checklist of Spanish chap-books before 1521. The first of the chap-books has four leaves, and gives important early printed forms of six ballad texts. The second has six leaves and is a nonsense poem. The first is interesting to students of folk-literature; both illustrate the survival of medieval topics and writing styles, and the mingling of oral and printed traditions in early sixteenth-century Spain.
