So named because the only manuscript of this legend discovered
belonged to A. F. Didot, the famous collector. This version
of the legend of the Holy Grail greatly emphasizes the illness
of the Fisher King. It tells how King Arthurs Round Table
was constructed and relates the adventures of Sir Perceval,
which are much the same as those told in the Conte del Graal.
Included is the Good Friday incident in which Perceval and
Brons are instructed in the mystical expressions that Christ was
said to have whispered to Joseph of Arimathea on the cross.
