Vita Edwardi secundi : the life of Edward the Second by Wendy R Childs( )

26 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in English and Latin and held by 1,761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Vita Edwardi Secundi are the chronicles of the reign of Edward II, and throws a light on the world of high politics. The anonymous author was close to the centre of politics, probably a royal clerk, and possibly John Walwayn (or someone with a similar career). His focus is largely on domestic politics and the relationship of the king and his barons, and he records the clashes and reconciliations of the period 1311-22 in valuable detail. He also has much to say on the Scottish war, the appointment of bishops, and the outbreak of the French war. The work ends in the winter of 1325/6 with Queen Isabella's refusal to return from France while Despenser remained with the king." "Recent research has emphasized that the Vita should be seen as a 'journal' rather than a 'memoir', and this enhances its value further, allowing historians to chart the changing views of a well-placed observer during the dramatic events of Edward's reign." "The Vita has been edited three times before, once in each century since its discovery in 1728, but the last edition of 1957 has long been out of print. This new edition revises the Latin text and translation, provides a completely new introduction and historical notes to take account of recent scholarship, and includes a new and full apparatus and indexes."--BOOK JACKET
Anglo-Castilian trade in the later Middle Ages by Wendy R Childs( Book )

The St. Albans chronicle : the Chronica maiora of Thomas Walsingham by Thomas Walsingham( Book )

40 editions published between 2002 and 2019 in English and Latin and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume II of The St Albans Chronicle now completes the edition. Drawing on the text in Bodley 462 and confirming the work of V. H. Galbraith, the editors make clear that the Annales Ricardi Secundi et Henrici Quarti were an integral part of the Chronica maiora. They also argue that, while Walsingham's contribution as author in the later years was much smaller than in the years to 1393 (when he was without doubt the sole author), it is most likely that he supervised the whole work; and at times, his own style is again apparent

The Anonimalle Chronicle, 1307 to 1334 : from Brotherton Collection MS 29( Book )

This fourteenth-century chronicle of British history was written at St. Mary's Abbey, York, which was a prominent religious centre at the time.

Trade and shipping in the medieval West : Portugal, Castile and England : a series of lectures in memoriam for professor Armindo de Sousa, given in the University of Porto, November 2009 by Wendy R Childs( Book )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a survey of European travellers and includes a discussion of the economic developments that encouraged trade and travel, with focus on general Iberian connections to northern Europe. Europe contained a highly mobile society in the later Middle Ages, in which merchants and seamen, nobles, diplomats and soldiers, churchmen and pilgrims travelled frequently, often long distances, and returned home to disseminate information about places they had seen and peoples they had met. Villagers who might not travel far from home could nonetheless hear tales from well-travelled servants of local lords, pilgrims and soldiers, mendicants and other churchmen, merchants and seamen. Trade was a major driver of geographical mobility; of the travelling groups merchants and seamen were among the most frequent and regular travellers, and they brought with them not only goods, but people, news, and information. Iberia and England were integral parts of the European commercial network, and Portuguese, Castilian, Basque, and English merchants and seamen travelled widely and regularly.0This book begins with a survey of European travellers (who travelled, why, where, and what sources they left behind), and includes a discussion of the economic developments that encouraged trade and travel. It then focusses on general Iberian connections to northern Europe, which pre-dated the early voyages of discovery and continued during them, before concentrating on Portuguese trade with the north, especially with England
