Studies in English official historical documents by Hubert Hall( Book )

24 editions published between 1908 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1908 book was a ground-breaking guide for historians in the use and interpretation of official documentary sources. Hubert Hall examines the topic under three headings - archives, diplomatics, and palaeography. In the first part he treats the history, classification and analysis of English archives. He argues that the user should take into account what once existed as well as what survives. The second part deals with diplomatics, from Anglo-Saxon to the sixteenth century. He calls for greater critical analysis of the different types of official documents, something lacking in England when compared to European scholarship. The final part introduces the student to palaeography, and the different kinds of handwriting and contractions met with in official documents. While the book makes no claim to be the definitive work on the subject, it raised the profile of a neglected tool of scholarship, and offers a starting point for further research
The Red book of the Exchequer by Great Britain( Book )

37 editions published between 1896 and 1980 in Latin and English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A rich resource for medieval historians, the Liber rubeus de Scaccario is a register, or book of remembrance, first compiled in the clerical offices of the Exchequer during the reign of Henry III. It contains documents from the post-Conquest period up to the year 1230. Including deeds and grants, as well as records of serjeanties and material from pipe rolls and various other sources, it has been deemed second only to the Domesday Book in importance for its wealth of genealogical and geographical information. The various records were brought together in order to provide a convenient single source for establishing legal precedents, and it remained in use throughout the middle ages. This three-volume edition was prepared by the archivist Hubert Hall (1857-1944) and published in 1896. Among the documents in Volume 3 are the Constitutio domus regis (c.1135) and selected writs of privilege

A formula book of English official historical documents by Hubert Hall( Book )

46 editions published between 1908 and 2013 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1908 work supplements Hall's Studies in English Official Historical Documents. It gives examples of a wide range of English diplomatic documents from the seventh to the nineteenth centuries. These are arranged according to type and purpose, the majority in Latin, but others in French or English. The intention is to assist the user of such archival materials, by familiarising them with the format and language used in each kind of document, and explaining why and how they were written. The 211 transcriptions were made by palaeography students at the London School of Economics, and classified and edited with extensive notes by Mr Hall. They are not literal transcriptions, as contractions have been expanded, and the punctuation and capitalisation modernised. To save space, standard formulas have not been repeated each time. Despite the lack of any illustrations of originals, the book filled a need long felt by students of history
