TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE:
The original Project Gutenberg edition of this ebook was a text file
prepared by Sue Asscher in 1998, from:
"MASTER FRANCIS RABELAIS FIVE BOOKS OF THE LIVES, HEROIC
DEEDS AND SAYINGS OF GARGANTUA AND HIS SON PANTAGRUEL",
Translated into English by Sir Thomas Urquhart of Cromarty
and Peter Antony Motteux.
The publisher's name and location were not included.
Sue Asscher added the following information regarding the printed book
she scanned:
"The text of the first Two Books of Rabelais has been reprinted from the
first edition (1653) of Urquhart's translation. Footnotes initialled
'M.' are drawn from the Maitland Club edition (1838); other footnotes
are by the translator. Urquhart's translation of Book III. appeared
posthumously in 1693, with a new edition of Books I. and II., under
Motteux's editorship. Motteux's rendering of Books IV. and V. followed
in 1708. Occasionally (as the footnotes indicate) passages omitted by
Motteux have been restored from the 1738 copy edited by Ozell."
In 2013 images obtained from Google Books were added by David Widger in
the production of the present HTML file:
