Editorial notes and bibliography
Edel infers that the Malay version of Hikayat Hasanuddin is a translation of the Javanese version, which it closely parallels.  In some places the Javanese text is better or more complete.  Edel presents the Malay and Javanese texts in parallel on facing pages.  The vowelled Javanese pegon text has been used where possible to provide the vowels for proper names in the Malay jawi text.
Editorially, Edel presents a synthetic text, using MS A as his base, but taking readings from MS B when these were judged better.  The implication is that the synthetic text is closer to an hypothesized ur-Malay text from which both A and B were copied.  Text Edel thinks should be omitted is enclosed in ( ), added is enclosed in [ ].
