The recent opportunity to re-examine the Livre vert of the cathedral of Avranches, which was the source of the five charters edited in the above-named article, led to the discovery of a number of typographical and transcriptional errors that had been overlooked prior to publication. Combined with the many mistakes of the cartulary scribe, which, except in cases of misspelling, were originally uncorrected, these errors left the texts as first published as very difficult documents to use. The new editions below are therefore offered as a replacement, and include corrections not only to the editor’s own mistakes, but also to those of the medieval scribe.
