Note Roditi: Contiene aprox. 26.000 de las 34.600 vv. del original. “it seems possible to conclude that the Chicago manuscript … belongs to the same manuscript family as the five Catalan prose versions … The syntax of the prose and the language of the translator are closer to modern Spanish than to Old Castilian, which suggests that the translation may have been undertaken at a time when the diffusion of printed books in Spain had already begun to standardize the forms of Spanish syntax. We can thus safely assume that the Chicago Castilian Breviario de amor belongs to the second half of the fifteenth century, perhaps even to the early sixteenth …” (pág.. 22)
