Bruce Ware Allen (whose book The Great Siege of Malta is coming out next week!) found and passed on to me this lengthy webpage about Maltese at Joe Arevalo’s Wunderkammer (“an assortment of compelling old and new items I have discovered and find interesting”); like Bruce, I don’t know enough about Maltese to judge its accuracy, but I know some of my readers do.
Update. Alex Fink points out in a comment:
This is just a translation of large parts of the French Wikipedia article on Maltese, and quite possibly one that has at best been lightly touched up by human hands (compare Google’s current rendering).
