Piers Plowman: the evidence for authorship by George Kane( Book )
22 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 590 libraries worldwide
The major edition of the three versions of Piers Plowman which the Athlone Press is in the process of publishing and of which Professor Kane is the general editor was not planned to include discussion of the authorship of the poem. The editors were agreed at the outset in believing that no real case for multiple authorship had been established in the course of the debate initiated by J.M. Manley in 1906, and they felt that a majority of Middle English scholars would support this view. They were satisfied that the hypothesis of single authorship was the best hypothesis to account for all aspec

The legend of good women by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )
4 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 170 libraries worldwide
This critical edition of the text brings together for the first time full manuscript variants and the results of recent palaeographical and codicological work on the manuscripts. It differs from earlier editions in attempting to identify textual originality from the quality of variant readings, and in giving grounds, in the analysis of variants, for the identification of the likelier derivative variant. The textual apparatus records not only all substantive variants but also morphological and spelling variants where there is potential ambiguity or where the form of a variant would seem to indicate the direction of variation. In their choice and treatment of copy text (Bodleian Library MS Tanner 346) the editors have adhered to the principle that the copy text is to be chosen for the appropriateness of its accidentals, and have maintained the distinction between accidentals and substantive readings which has not often been valued or observed in the editing of Chaucer. In examining the differences between the text of the Prologue to The Legend of Good Women in Cambridge University Library MS Gg. 4.27 and that preserved in the other manuscripts of the poem, the editors address the problem of distinguishing between authorial and scribal variation

18 editions published between 1960 and 1988 in English and English, Middle [1100-1500] and held by 155 libraries worldwide
The Piers Plowman glossary : Will's visions of Piers Plowman, Do-Well, Do-Better and Do-Best : a glossary of the English vocabulary of the A, B, and C versions as presented in the Athlone editions by George Kane( Book )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 149 libraries worldwide
"The Glossary is designed to facilitate access to William Langland's fourteenth-century dream-vision poem Piers Plowman which, with Dante's Divine Comedy and Chaucer's Troilus and Canterbury Tales, proclaimed the coming of age of European vernacular poetry. It defines the more than 5,000 English words, and words used as English, in the three forms of the poem printed in the Athlone series."
Piers Plowman by William Langland( Book )
7 editions published between 1960 and 1988 in English, Middle [1100-1500] and English and held by 37 libraries worldwide
This edition has been prepared with a full sense of the intrinsic literary power and complexity of the work, and also of its significance as a record of social and religious conflict and crises in a turbulent age. The introduction and the extensive notes and glossary are designed to enable the student to respond to all the layers of meaning in the text and to Langland's vivid and versatile style. The C-text is chosen as the basis for the edition as being the latest revision of the poem, and therefore as bearing to some extent the author's stamp of authority. It is possible to argue, furthermore, that the C-revision presents a clearer and less cluttered argument than B, and sharpens the lineaments of the poem
