Alphonse Blanc (b. 1846) was a Languedocian scholar, who published many columns about Old and Modern Occitan at the end of the XIXth century. He was a teacher in Narbona and a member of the Archeological Commission of that city. In 1891, he publishes in the Revue des Langues Romanes this text about the Old Occitan (he uses the word Provençal) – Latin dictionaries contained in two manuscrits in the French National Library (Ms. 7657 and Ms. 7685). He shows both are late copies of the same text, dating around 1400. Instead of publishing the full text, he stresses the words that are not in the Raynouard dictionary (see DELO #52 to 63). Our foreword ends with a list of known publications of Alphonse Blanc.
The text was extracted from the Revue des langues romanes (1891) digitized and published on the Gallica website.
