Primary sources Text editions and/or modern translations – in whole or in part – along with publications containing additions and corrections, if known.

For historical purposes, early editions, transcriptions and translations are not excluded, even if their reliability does not meet modern standards.

[ed.] [tr.] Atkinson, Robert, The passions and the homilies from Leabhar Breac: text, translation and glossary, Todd Lecture Series, 2, Dublin: Hodges, Figgis, 1887.  

Note that there are various references throughout the book to material in the appendix, but in the introduction, Atkinson states he regrets “that I have not found it possible to include in the present volume the Appendix and Notes”.
