Parts of several editions of the poem are freely available in Google books. There is vol. 1 of Méon’s 1819 edition; vol. 1 of Michel’s 1864 edition; vol. 3 of the edition of Langlois from 1921 as well as his Origines et sources du Roman de la Rose; vol. 3 of Dufresnoy and Damerey’s 1799 edition; and vol. 5 of the 1880 edition of Croissandeau. There is also a transcription of Hunter 409 in Max Kaluza’s 1891 publication. And finally, Francis William Bourdillon’s book on The early editions of the Roman de la Rose is available in full.

Excellent post; thanks for the news. And don't forget that the Internet Archive (www.archive.org) appears to have gathered some interesting items. For example, Pierre Marteau's 1878 edition is available (five volumes). Vols 1 and 2 of Francisque Michel's edition are there, along with Vols 2, 3, and 4 of Méon's work. All five volumes of the Langlois SATF edition can be found. And much more (if one is not defeated by the site's quirky design and poorly applied metadata). -wph
Many thanks, wph! This is very useful.
