XVIII century is very unlikely. Old Russian was not known then as well as it
is now. A good annotated translation (out of print but available at most
college libraries) is Vladimir Nabokov's (yes, THE Vladimir Nabokov of
_Lolita_ fame) _The Song of Igor's Campaign_. For those who read Russian, D.
Likhachev's articles on the subject are also well worth reading. I think some
of them have been translated into English, but I'm not sure, and I don't have
any refs. (that's what avoiding translations gets you; so why V.N.'s? Because
of the notes).
