By James Morton Paton

A number of phrases in regard to the contents of this little ebook are worthy. Its writer, on the time of his demise on November 23, 1944, had in preparation
an wide paintings at the mediaeval heritage and monuments of Athens, in the
manifold assets for which, even after the necessary experiences of Laborde and
more contemporary students, he nonetheless discovered a clean harvest. His researches, carried on
principally within the libraries and documents of Paris, Venice, Florence and Rome,
were interrupted in 1939 through the ecu battle, and their continuation at the
Harvard university Library was once just a little later terminated via his steadily failing
health. His paintings, even with its lengthy length, can scarcely be acknowledged to have passed
beyond the degree of gathering assets; their synthesis and dialogue he had of
course postponed till they need to were properly assembled. He had,
however, even supposing Athens remained the guts of his curiosity, nearly completed
a few sections, forming to a definite quantity byways best from the most path,
and he had additionally ready the texts of assorted resources in a sort appropriate for publication.
This fabric is amassed the following within the wish that, as he might have desired,
it mzy end up of provider to destiny investigators within the comparable box. His inner most notes
have provided a foundation for the most a part of the moderate considered necessary enhancing, which has
chiefly consisted within the finishing touch or addition of footnotes. A lecture on Turkish
Athens, although a bit of ordinary and brought decades in the past, has been
included as a compendium of its topic that could be came across handy. The accounts
of Athens in bankruptcy I1 were hitherto unpublished, or published
only in infrequent or now not simply available texts, and consequently, with a number of additions, are
brought jointly the following, whether now not annotated or totally collated. I t can't be too
strongly emphasised that not anyone may have insisted extra zealously than the
writer upon the basically incomplete situation of the cloth as a complete - a
condition certainly that bills for the absence or the inequalities in presentation
of a few very important resources between these given below.
He might earnestly have wanted to show his honest gratitude to the Bibliothcque
Nationale in Paris, to the Archivio di Stato and the Biblioteca Marciana
in Venice, the Biblioteca Laurenziana and the Archivio di Stato in Florence,
the Biblioteca Vaticana, and the Harvard university Library for the numerous courtesies
that he obtained from them during his researches. that when back his
work must have been given a spot one of the Gennadeion Monographs is an
honor of which he may were deeply appreciative.

Bibliothek des Literarischen Vereins in Stuttgart, XXV, 1851. Suchem, the place where, according to the manuscripts, Ludolf was pastor, is unknown, but its form here is an easily recognizable example of the common scribal error of substituting c for t. Suthem represents apparently Sudheim (or Siidheim), a familiar name, of which two instances are found in Paderborn, -one, a sparsely inhabited and insignificant place; the other, a town of considerable importance near Lichtenau.
