Are you sure that Julian's work has survived in any manuscripts that
actually use those medieval characters? According to Colledge and Walsh,
there is only one manuscript that predates 1500 (that's the unique ms of
the shorter text, in an anthology that is now London, BL Add. 37790), and
that one was probably not written before 1450. As for the longer text, the
most important surviving ms (Paris, BN fonds anglais 40) evidently dates
from the 17th century.
