Not yet rated | write a review
This 1991 publication contains the first printed edition of a short continuation of the Anglo-Norman prose Brut found in the Anonimalle Chronicle. This fourteenth-century chronicle of British history was written at St Mary''s Abbey, York, which was a prominent religious centre at the time. Notable for being the most complete example of the text to be found, the continuation here is a valuable source for the wars and political crises of the reign of Edward II and the early reign of Edward III. The manuscript, its contents and value are all discussed in a thorough introduction, while the text is presented with a facing-page translation into English. The work was edited by Wendy Childs, Emeritus Professor of Later Medieval History at Leeds, and John Taylor (1925-2009), former Reader in Medieval History at Leeds.
