QUERY> Scholarship on T190 佛本行集經 (Fo-ben-xing-ji-jing) (Fifield)

Dear list,

I am searching for academic work on Taisho 190 佛本行集經  (Fo-ben-xing-ji-jing).  This is the text translated long ago by Beal as "The Romantic Legend of the Śākya Buddha." 

I am aware that many books and articles cite this text for information about the Buddha's biography.  I am not looking for these.
