Does anyone know of any extant english translations of the Visio Mystica/ Flos Florum (attr. to Arnald of Villanova / Johannes de Vasconia)?

I have Adam Mclean's excellent transcript of an english version of this text, taken from the Yale Ripley scroll (which I have also consulted directly). But there are a couple of sections where the text is missing or virtually illegible, especially at the very end, making the meaning somewhat unclear.

There was an interesting thread (in 1999) about this text here:
http://www.levity.com/alchemy/a-archive_aug99.html

I wonder if any new / online sources have appeared, in any language? Mention was made in the above thread of an italian version, but the link no longer works.

Many thanks,

Richard
