The ‘Geste’ of Auberi le Bourgoing, or Bourgignon (it is variously written) is contained in three MSS. all of which are in the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris. The first and most important of these is No. 860, Fonds français, containing besides our poem a series of other ‘Gestes’ of leading importance. The ‘Auberi’ of this MS. is the most lengthy of the three, it numbers some 27,264 lines and is in excellent condition except that two or three of the last folios are wanting. The MS. is of about 1250 and is divided into two principal branches: that of Auberi and that of Lambert d'orridon; Auberi, however, being the most prominent character in both. The beginning of the second, which might escape attention unless one were reading the whole, is on the sixty-ninth folio of the poem which itself commences on page one hundred and thirty-four of the entire codex. A second MS. is No. 859, Fonds français, also of about 1250. It is shorter than the first, containing a little over 23,000 verses. The MS. is an interesting one. It was damaged in some way but has been very deftly repaired. The fly-leaves consist of portions of a Code of Justinian and of a book of devotions, both in Latin; its second branch, that of Lambert d'Orridon, commences on folio ninety-nine. The third MS. is No. 24,368, Fonds français, and contains 22,648 verses, ending, instead of the usual explicit, with the note: “ce fut fet l'an de grace MCC IIII XX XVIII le prochain mardy devant la nativité.” The second branch of this commences on folio fifty-two. There have been other MSS. of this ‘Geste’ but they are lost. C. Fauchet, the sixteenth-century philologist and critic, in a note he makes on the margin of folio one hundred and thirty-six of MSS. 860, speaks of another which has disappeared. Immanual Bekker in 1829, speaks of “eine dem Herrn Professor von der Hagan gehörige Pergamenthandschrift” of ‘Auberi,’ but where this may now be I was not able to discover (vide the preface to Bekker's ‘Roman von Fierabras,’ Berlin 1829). A search which I made in the manuscript catalogues of the Arsenal and Mazarin libraries and in those of the Department libraries which I. could find in the Bibliothèque Nationale, did not reveal anything further upon the subject.
