Hayton: La Flor des Estoires d’Orient

La Flor des Estoires d’Orient by Hayton of Corycus [also: Hetoum, Haiton, Haitho, Hayton etc.] (m. after 1307) consists of four books: a geographic description of Asia, an outline of the history of Asia, a history of the Mongols and a plan for a crusade. The original version was a French version, which was translated into Latin and retranslated into French.  The editio princeps was published in 1510 in Paris.

The most important edition of the French original remains the one by Charles Kohler from 1906:
Charles Kohler (ed.): “Hayton, La flor des estoires de la terre d’Orient”. In: Recueil des historiens des croisades. Documents arméniens. Tome second. Publ. par les soins de l’Académie royale des inscriptions et des belles-lettres (Paris: Imprimerie nationale 1906)
