The Corporation of London has an extensive collection of medieval records which can be used to trace the development of the City, and provide much information of all aspects of civic life - social, economic, political, ecclesiastical, legal and military. H. T. Riley (1816-78) spent many years editing and translating some of the most significant documents, and thereby establishing his scholarly reputation. Volume 2 of this three-volume work, published in two parts in 1860, contains previously unpublished parts of the Liber Custumarum, a miscellaneous collection of documents and charters relating to London, and of Cottonian MS Claudius D.II, which was originally part of the Liber Custumarum. At a later date, other material relating to the City was also added. The documents are mostly in Latin, with parts in French; glossaries of Latin, Anglo-Norman, Anglo-Saxon, and early English words and an index are supplied at the end of Part 2

Between 1863 and 1876, the Rolls Series published several works from or about the abbey of St Albans, edited by Henry Thomas Riley (1816-78) under the rubric 'Chronica Monasterii S. Albani', several of them by Thomas Walsingham (c.1340-c.1422), who supervised the scriptorium at St Albans until 1394 and wrote in Latin on subjects including history, classics and music. This edition of Thomas' last historical work appeared in 1876. A digest of mainly English history from the ninth century to 1419, it contains a dedication to Henry V that emphasises his dynasty's Norman origins and his recent reconquest of Normandy, the 'Neustria' of the title. It contains records of sea and land battles, conspiracies and heresies, weather events and comets, and fascinating details including the appearance of a dolphin in the Thames in 1392 and a state visit to England by the Emperor of Constantinople
