It is amazing that this was finally "discovered" after all of these years! This really is a monumental find!

It sure would be nice to know the details of the discovery. Was it just locked in a trunk the family had been ignoring? Was it in an attic or something? How did it come into their possession? Was it kept as a secret?

An excellent discovery of what is widely considered the world's first novel.

Great historic/literary discovery. Amazing that it is so well preserved after so many centuries.

The manuscripts were "lost" perhaps because the owners lost interest in them and did not appreciate their value so they became forgotten.

Agree. On my list of books to read, but have not got to it yet, so I might hold off until I can get the revised version?
