The Instructions are Saint Louis’s second set of recommendations, which he addressed to his daughter Isabelle, who later became Queen of Navarre. O’Connell’s critical text is, for the most part, based on the non-Latinized manuscript ms. G (ca. 1300) and incorporates variants from E (the printed version of the Latinized manuscripts) and KMN (non-Latinized manuscripts).
