Happily, of my colleagues at York collage provided their support in
preparing the variation for e-book and securing a writer. For them,
this has concerned paintings over a couple of years: updating the introduction
and bibliography in mild of modern Capgrave scholarship, re-reading the
Middle English and the Latin texts opposed to the manuscripts, increasing the
notes and re-ordering the word list in keeping with the advice of
outside readers."
