FIRST PRINTED TRANSLATIONS
This bibliography has been compiled with the view of supplementing existing text books on English literary history, and assisting students in preparing for examinations in Bibliography and Literature. It will also be found of service to those who are working for the professional examinations of the Library Association.
Students of literature, more particularly of English literature, experience much difficulty in tracing the outside influences which at various periods, or, perhaps, speaking more correctly, at all periods, have affected or moulded our literature. The great foreign classics have exercised a direct and decided influence upon English literature and the object of this bibliography is to give in concise form the authors and titles, translations and dates of the first English translations of the chief foreign authors, and incidentally to enable students to note the effect of such translations on the works of many of our great imaginative writers.
So far as it has been possible to discover, no work of this kind exists in this country. Students are frequently reminded of the special need for such a bibliography as this, and to all interested in the subject it should serve a useful purpose, and perhaps help to fill a gap in literary bibliography.
Students have been asked such questions as--give the date of the first translation into English of _Don Quixote_, of _The Arabian Nights_, Boccaccio's _Decameron_, or of Homer. Such questions as these naturally involve some inquiry and research on the part of the student, and occupy a larger amount of time than is necessary for the purpose. Hence the necessity for a brief bibliography of this nature, which will show at a glance the first translations into English of the most important foreign classics, and save inquirers the fatigue of searching catalogues, bibliographies and similar works.
The dictionary form of arrangement has been adopted with the authors in alphabetical order. In some instances a work has been noticed twice, in which case the first entry will generally be found to be an edition, either issued in an incomplete form, or with a doubtful date. It has also been found necessary to enumerate in nearly all cases the separate works of each author; the complete works not appearing till a much later time. The date of original publication has occasionally been given in brackets, and where a date is seen in square brackets [ ], it denotes the approximate date of publication.
The anthologies, collections, folk and fairy tales, poetical and traditional literature have been placed in their national order under French, German, etc., many important minor works have been published in these forms, and many important poems have been first translated in these anthologies, often long before they have appeared in the author's translated works.
The most important of the Anglo-Saxon, etc., romances have been included in this Bibliography and appear generally under their titles. These have played a very important part in the development of our literature, and many may be considered as foreign, having derived their origin from foreign sources.
No one is more conscious than the compiler of the difficulties this little work has entailed, and no one is more conscious of its imperfections. As far as possible each entry has been verified at least three times, and from different sources, yet inaccuracies may have crept in, and any corrections, additions or suggestions will be thankfully acknowledged.
This bibliography could have been much enlarged, but the endeavour has been to include only those authors whose work has gone to the making of English literature, or who stand pre-eminent as introducing a special school, class or form.
I desire to offer to Mr. James D. Brown my best thanks for his suggestions in the early stages of this compilation, and to Dr. Baker for his kindly criticism, and also for going through the proofs.
WILLIAM JAMES HARRIS.

At about the beginning of the reign of John the great French romance was composed in nine books, containing altogether about 20,000 of the twelve-syllabled lines since known, from their use in that poem, as 'Alexandrines'.

ARTHUR, KING OF GREAT BRITAIN. A Book of the Noble Hystoryes of Kynge Arthur, and of Certeyn of his knyghtes, reduced into Englysshe by Syr Thomas Malory, Kynght and by me William Caxton. 1485.
Tennyson's 'Idylls of the King' and Arnold's 'Tristram and Iseult' are taken from the above legends.
(Also noticed under Anglo-Saxon collections.)
'In 1155 the Jersey Norman, Robert Wace, converts and amplifies Geoffrey's work into the French romance "Brut d'Engleterre" or "Geste des Bretons", introducing for the first time the Table Round. This again is developed in English verse by Layamon in his "Brut" of 1205. From various sources and by various hands, the Arthurian legends are increased. Milton for a time was strongly attached to this subject, and in his "Epitaphium Damonis" he shows the hold which the Arthurian legends had taken upon him, and he explicitly proposed to make Arthur and the British knights the subject of an epic'.
=ARTHUR. 14th century.=
_Ed._ Furnivall, E.E.T.S., 1864.
=ARTHUR OF LITTLE BRITAIN.= THE HYSTORY OF ARTHUR OF LYTELL BRYTAYNE, translated out of Frensshe in to Englishe, by the noble Johan Bourghcher, Knyght, Lord Berners. 1493.
Not the Arthurian legend, but irresponsible adventures like the Amadis. Said to have had a great influence on Spenser's Faerie Queene.
Arthur and Charlemagne are among the first and original heroes of romance, in whose chronicles are displayed the characters, the leading subjects, and the fundamental fictions which have supplied such ample matter to this form of composition. 'As Geoffrey's history is the grand repository of the acts of Arthur, so a fabulous history, ascribed to Archbishop Turpin, is the groundwork of all the legends told of the conquest of Charlemagne and his twelve peers'.

'The Bishop of Agen, was the most important of the Italian _novellieri_. His "Novello" is a popular story, derived from the French _fabliau_, full of spirited action, and true to the life of his time'.
Shakespeare, Massinger and other English dramatists derived some of their plots from B. Thus 'Romeo and Juliet', 'Measure for Measure', 'Othello', etc., are all from the 'Novello'. The Elizabethans also imitated B. largely.
The stories of Bandello enjoyed a wide vogue in France and England, and formed matter for the exploitation of every class of our Elizabethan dramatists and writers of fiction.

B. was profoundly versed in ancient literature, and contributed most to the great movement of the renaissance.
The first English translation was made by John Wycliffe in 1383.

E.g. BIBLIA. The Bible, that is, the holy Testament of the Olde and Newe Testament, faithfully and truly translated out of the Douche and Latyn into English, 1535.

'If we were to take our greatest authors and read them through, pencil in hand; if we were to mark those words and images and turns of expression which we feel to be derived consciously or unconsciously from the English version of the Hebrew Bible, we should be amazed to find how much of purely literary strength and dignity that one book has added to our tongue'.--T. G. Tucker.

THE BOKE CALLED DE JOHN BOCHAS DESCRIUINGE THE FALLE OF PRINCIS, PRINCESSIS AND OTHER NOBLES, translated into Englissh, by John Lydgate, etc., 1494.
NOVELS AND TALES. _Tr._ 1684.
Boccaccio directly borrowed his 'Teseide' from Statius' 'Thebaid', A.D. 70. Introduced the octave stanza. The 'Knight's Tale' and 'Troilus and Cressida' of Chaucer are from the 'Teseide' of B., as also is Shakespeare's 'Troilus and Cressida' from the 'Filostrato.' 'All's Well that Ends Well' is also from B. Chaucer borrowed very freely from him.
The 'Decameron' suggested to Chaucer his plan for the 'Canterbury Tales', and also some of the 'Tales' themselves, and its influence on the development of the English novel was enormous.
'The "Decameron" consists of a hundred stories supposed to be related in ten consecutive days, by a party of ten ladies and gentlemen, who had retreated to a charming asylum from plague-stricken Florence in the year 1348. Some of the stories are tragedies, some are comic, some idylls. B. took most of his plots from the current fiction of his time, from the popular French _fabliaux_, from Oriental and classical sources, from actual history, and from tradition'.
For other copyings from B. it may be enough to mention Lydgate's 'Falls of Princes' and the 'Mirror for Magistrates' (1559) based on the 'De Casibus Illustrium Virorum' of the Italian.

THE BOKE OF CONSOLACION OF PHILOSOPHIE. _Tr._ by Geoffrey Chaucer. . Printed by Caxton.
[This work was first translated by King Alfred into Anglo-Saxon.]
'Boethius stood to the Dark Ages for the exemplar of the philosopher. His place in mediaeval reading was very high, and may be gauged from the fact that in England Alfred the Great translated his "Consolations" into Anglo-Saxon. To Chaucer, as to all the mediaeval world, "Boece" was part of the staple library'.

Roscommon's 'Essay on Translated Verse' is derived from Boileau's French 'Art de Poetique'. One of the 'correct' school. Pope and Addison were largely influenced by B. The former's 'Essay on Criticism' is inspired by him. Boileau himself was influenced by the 'De Arte Poetica' of Horace.

=GEOFFREY OF MONMOUTH.= _b._ 1100, _d._ 1154. =British historian.=
THE BRITISH HISTORY. _Tr._ With a large commentary by Aaron Thomson, 1718.
Historia Regum Brittaniæ, or Historia Britonum, based, as Geoffrey tells us, upon a very old book lent him by Archdeacon Walter (Galenius) of Oxford, probably a volume of Breton Legends. Geoffrey also drew from the older history of Nennius, but there still remains a large portion of his work which has not been traced beyond his own pen.
The 'Historia' is looked upon as an epoch-making book, owing to the impulse it gave to the literature of Romance. Legends afloat among the natives of Wales and Bretagne were now given a literary garb which rendered them sufficiently attractive to awaken the interest of the world in general, and the imagination of the mediæval poet was aroused by the chivalric glamour which the historian threw over his descriptions of Arthur's Court. It was a main source, but not the exclusive one of Arthurian legend, for independent of the fact that many characteristic features of the latter are not mentioned by him, there is evidence of Welsh fables being extant in the 12th century, which supplied material for later romances apart from Geoffrey's history.
This work is the fountain-head of medieval romance, the principal source of the legends of Merlin and Arthur, which were amplified by the romancers by material from Celtic tradition. Geoffrey's work is the basis of Wace's 'Roman de Brut' and of Layamon's 'Brut'.

STORY OF THE MOOR OF VENICE. _Tr._ by G. B. G. C. 1795.
These stories enjoyed a wide vogue in France and England, and formed matter for the exploitation of every class of our Elizabethan dramatists or writers of fiction. They have a particular interest to students of English literature as having furnished, whether directly or indirectly, the plots of 'Measure for Measure', and 'Othello'. That of the latter is said to have reached Shakespeare through the French translation, while that of the former is probably to be traced to Wheatstone's 'Promos and Cassandra' (1578), an adaptation of Cinthio's story, and to his 'Heptameron' (1582), which contains a direct English translation. To Giraldi must be also attributed Beaumont and Fletcher's 'Custom of the Country'.

'The influence of Goethe is not calculable. The effect of his Faust begins most clearly in Byron's "Manfred"'. He has influenced English ballad and lyrical poetry, as is seen in Scott and Coleridge.
'The influence of such a man must be vast. Byron and Shelley owned it and showed it. Carlyle, as stern a critic as ever played the pedagogue, is unmixed in his admiration for the man Goethe, who is to him divine. In his own country his "Werther", despite its frequent morbidness and its longueurs, determined the feeling of every sentimentalist. Outside that country his "Wilhelm Meister" has become almost a textbook in æsthetic philosophy'.

This work is important as the principal literary monument in the English language of that period.
The poet 'thrummed' three books into one in his work, namely, Wace's 'Geste des Bretons' (1155), his chief source, Baeda's work in his own Latin, and Alfred's translation of the same. The author has the distinction of being the first to commemorate King Arthur in English verse.
=LAZARILLO DE TORMES.= [1554.]
THE PLEASAUNT HISTORIE OF LAZARILLO DE TORMES, A SPANIARDE ... draune out of Spanish by David Rowland ... 1586.
'This little work may be thought by some of a low and trifling nature: but it is the first of a race of comic romances. For wit, spirit and inexhaustible resources ... there is nothing like the Spanish rogue'.
'The first novela picaresca, or rogue story'. The appearance of this work (1554) marks the date at which such stories first took shape as a distinct branch of the novel, to be known as the 'picaroon' or 'picaresque'. From that time, for nearly a century, the 'Novelas de Picaros' are a chief product of Spanish writing. Chief among the progeny of 'Lazarillo' are 'Guzman de Alfarache' (1599), a sequel to 'L' itself by Luma (1620), and 'The Life of Buscon' by Quevedo (1626). All these were quickly translated into English. In England the effect of the picaresque novel first appears in the 'Jack Wilton' of Nash. In France the type passed through the hands of Scarron and Le Sage, whose 'Diable Boiteau' and 'Gil Blas' were destined to eclipse the fame of the Spanish originals. From the examples of France this species broke out in England with the 'Moll Flanders' and 'Colonel Jack' of Defoe, the 'Joseph Andrews' of Fielding, the 'Roderick Random' and 'Peregrine Pickle' of Smollett. In the nineteenth century it finds its congeners in the 'Three Musketeers' of Dumas and in the works of several minor English novelists. 'Mr. Jingle does not essentially differ from this type'.

To countless others besides Macaulay it has been their first illumination of the everlasting principles of beauty.

As a brooding poet, a mystic, and a contemplative spectator of the comedy of death, whose work is couched, almost by a sort of accident, in dramatic form, Maeterlinck will probably find a place in literature'.

TARTUFFE; or THE FRENCH PURITAN; a comedy (1667). _Tr._ by M. Medburne, 1670.
WORKS; The first collected works were translated by J. Ozell, 6 v. 1714.
The writings of Molière were greatly influenced by the dramas of Plautus. His 'L'Avare' is from the 'Aulularia', and his 'Amphitryon' from 'Amphitruo'.
Molière was also influenced by the writings of Terence, and his 'Ecole des Maris' is from the 'Adelphi', and his 'Les Fourberies de Scapin' from the 'Phormio' of Terence.
The plays of M. were imitated by Wycherley and Farquhar and the post-Restoration dramatists. Meredith in his 'Essay on Comedy' admits his profound and salutary influence on English fiction.
Molière was copied, adapted, translated by English writers, and that not merely for reading, but for acting purposes. Dryden translated 'L'Etourdi' as 'Sir Martin Mar-All'; Vanburgh turned 'Le Dépit Amoureux' into 'The Mistake'; Wycherley offered 'The Plain Dealer' as a version of 'Le Misanthrope'; Fielding's 'Mock-Doctor' is 'Le Médecin Malgré Lui', his 'Miser' is Molière's 'L'Avare'; Colley Cibber converted 'Tartuffe' into 'The Non-Juror'.
=MONTAIGNE, MICHAEL E. DE.= _b._ 1533, _d._ 1589. =French philosopher and essayist.=
THE ESSAYS, (ESSAIS) or, MORALL, POLITIKE AND MILLITARIE DISCOURSES OF LO: M. DE MONTAIGNE ... now done into English by J. Florio, 1603.
The first model of the essay. To Elizabethan England the 'Essays' of M. were well-known either directly or through the translation of Florio. The 'Essays' of Bacon are clearly indebted to his example. How far his influence has extended is incalculable.

DIANA. [With a second part of A. Perez and also a continuation: entitled, Enamoured Diana, by G. G. Polo.] _Tr._ by B. Yong, 1598.
Spenser's 'Shepherd's Calendar' and Sidney's 'Arcadia' are both influenced by M.
'From the "Arcadia" of Sanazzaro on the one hand, and from the "libros de caballerias" on the other, the Portuguese-Spaniard Montemayor created his famous "Diana." This work, like Sidney's "Arcadia," is partly in prose and partly in verse, and, in such English development as arose from the pastoral, the influence of the Spaniard must be reckoned with that of the Neapolitan. It appears in Spenser's "Shepheard's Calendar", and incidentally, it may be observed, that before writing his "Two Gentlemen of Verona" Shakespeare would seem at least to have been told of the substance of Montemayor'.

Largely influenced Chaucer, Spenser, Milton, Pope and Shakespeare.
'In and before the poems of Chaucer, the poems of Ovid upon love and its cure were much drawn upon by writers of romance and allegories. They were the direct inspiration of much of the troubadour poetry of Provence, and thence of the mediaeval lyric verse of Europe in general. Ovidian borrowings are manifest in the "Romance of the Rose". Chaucer himself was a student of Ovid, Lucan, Virgil, "Stace" and also Livy. From Ovid's "Metamorphoses," and love-elegies in particular, he took much matter. Spenser's "Faerie Queene" is full of borrowings from Ovid's "Metamorphoses". The effect of Ovid on Shakespeare is manifest in his "Venus and Adonis"'.

FABLES. _Tr._ by J. Davidson, 1745.
FIFTY FABLES OF PHÆDRUS, in Latin, French and English. _Tr._ by D. Bellamy, 1734.
'Phaedrus put into verse the Greek fables--commonly fathered all alike on "Æsop"--which he could find current in his day. The collection is probably much the same as that of the Greek "Demetrius Phalereus" (300 B.C.). From the point of view of both morals and language, the book served admirably for schoolboys, and it is at least one of the main sources of the fables which found their way into England, first with Alfred, and, later, in more force with Caxton's "Æsop"'.
=PILPAY= (=BÍDPÁÍ=). =Oriental fabulist.=
 THE MORALL PHILOSOPHIE OF DONI--drawne out of Ancient Writers ... _Tr._ by Sir T. North, 1570.

Several European fabulists, including Æsop, La Fontaine, have drawn largely from the fables of P.

The philosophy of P. influenced the poetry of Shelley, and Wordsworth's 'Intimations of Immortality'. His philosophy has affected all subsequent philosophers.

'Sackville sought his comic models in Plautus'.
=PLINY= (=GAIUS PLINIUS SECUNDUS=). _The elder._ _b._ 23, _d._ 79. =Latin writer.=

'Doubtless Pliny's "Encyclopædia" is ultimately responsible for much of the confused natural history of the Middle Ages, and not only Chaucer, but also the sixteenth century Euphuists, with their egregious similitudes, are almost certainly in his debt'.

A RIGHT NOBLE HISTORY OF THE SUCCESSORS OF ALEXANDER AND SOME OF THEIR LIVES. Written by ... P. etc., 1569.
Shakespeare used North's tr. of Plutarch's 'Lives' freely for his plots as is seen in _Coriolanus_, _Julius Caesar_. P. also initiated the biographical essay, of whom we have the best exponent in Macaulay. Has formed a model for all later writers.

It was later followed by 'Moll Flanders' and 'Colonel Jack' by Defoe, the 'Joseph Andrews' of Fielding, the 'Roderick Random' and 'Peregrine Pickle' of Smollett. In the nineteenth century we find it imitated by Dumas in 'The Three Musketeers' and also in some of the later minor novelists.

=ROMANCE OF THE ROSE.= By Guillaume de Lorris and Jean de Meung.
THE ROMAUNT OF THE ROSE. _Ed._ by Dr. Max Kaluza. [From the Glasgow MS. Published by the _Chaucer Soc._ The first 1704 lines are probably Chaucer's.] 1890.
[This was translated by Chaucer and some of his predecessors, and the MS. of part of it is in existence.]
Chaucer and Gower borrowed freely from the 'Roman de la Rose'. This romance was familiar in both France and England before Chaucer's time. Wace and Benoît de Sainte-More written by Anglo-Normans.
It was the reading of this work that influenced the first efforts of Chaucer. During the epoch which is called the Chaucerian, authors known and nameless used the stock of mediaeval France as freely and as monotonously as the French themselves.
=RONSARD, PIERRE DE.= _b._ 1524, _d._ 1585. =Eminent French poet.=
Some translations from Ronsard will be found in 'Ronsard and La Pléiade', by G. Wyndham, 1906.
Ronsard and Du Bellay are the two most important names of the 'Pléiade'. The followers of R., through the Italian school introduced the 'classical' style of verse into England. 'The English poets also read Du Bellay, who finally established the sonnet and at the same time served as a pattern for English writers. One writer of the Ronsardist School, Du Bartas, was a writer of real religious conviction, and his "Semaine" or "Week of Creation", translated by Sylvester, gained no small currency in England'.

R., whether in a novel or in his 'Confessions', is the first writer in modern Europe to expatiate upon inanimate nature in connexion with the feelings. Affected English poetry in the early nineteenth century.
'How much of the "Nature Worship" of Wordsworth and his age may be due to this example can hardly be estimated, but the name of R. was a familiar one in England, and by him was sown much of the seed which our own revivalists watered'.
'The works of Rousseau have exercised a direct and uncommon influence upon English literature, which it is hard to define. There is no doubt he is the "Father of modern democracy"' (Prof. Lowell).

'The Icelandic Sagas'--the prose histories of the fortunes of the great Icelandic houses--are the last, and also the finest, expression and record of the spirit and the ideas belonging properly to the Germanic race in its own right, and not derived from Rome or Christendom'.
An immense imaginative literature is growing up around the Sagas. To mention only a few prominent writers who have received their inspiration from these sources, we have, Baring-Gould in 'Grettir the Outlaw' (1889), the works of Henty and Ballantyne, R. Leighton's 'Olaf the Glorious' (1894), Du Chaillu's 'Olaf the Viking' (1893), Kingsley's 'Hereward', etc., Longfellow, W. Morris in 'Sigurd' and 'Earthly Paradise', and Arnold's 'Balder Dead', etc., etc.
