Gilbert died without completing the task so it was completed by John of Ford, a contemporary English abbot. Gilbert's contribution has been published in three volumes, of which this is the third in the set. Previous owner's book plate on the front free end paper and signed by the translator on the title page. The book shows minor wear to the board corners and spine tips, else fine.
