I suppose that depends on how you encode things in your <sourceDesc>.
What else goes in that <listBibl> (or those <listBibl>s? Did you
really mean "...listBibl[position()=last()]]/biblStruct..." or did
you mean "...listBibl/biblStruct[position()last()]..."?) besides the
<biblStruct> of the printed edition used, and in what order?
If you've got
<biblStruct><!-- entry for src manuscript --></biblStruct>
<biblStruct><!-- entry for LA printed edition --></biblStruct>
<biblStruct><!-- entry for FR translation of above --></biblStruct>
<biblStruct><!-- entry for microfilm of FR we used for transcription --></biblStruct>
would do you, no?
