Polychronicon Ranulphi Higden monachi Cestrensis; together with the English translations of John Trevisa and of an unknown writer of the fifteenth century by Ranulf Higden( Book )

62 editions published between 1865 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ranulf Higden (d.1364) was a monk at the abbey of St Werburgh in Chester. His most important literary work is this universal chronicle, which survives in over a hundred Latin manuscripts, testifying to its popularity. The earliest version of it dates from 1327, but Higden continued writing until his death, expanding and updating the text. It was also continued in other monastic houses, most importantly by John Malvern of Worcester. The English translation made by John Trevisa in the 1380s was also widely circulated and is included in this work, published in nine volumes for the Rolls Series between 1865 and 1886. The chronicle shows how fourteenth-century scholars understood world history and geography. Volume 4 contains the rest of Book 3, on the Hellenistic period up to the birth of Christ, and the start of Book 4, up to the end of the first century CE
Chronicon Henrici Knighton; vel, Cnitthon, monachi leycestrensis by Henry Knighton( Book )

54 editions published between 1889 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume work was published as part of the Rolls Series between 1889 and 1895. A history of England, it deals principally with the period from 1066 until the death of author Henry Knighton around 1396. An introductory section of material largely drawn from Ranulf Higden adds what Knighton describes as necessary context to the recounting of the Norman Conquest. Volume 1 covers the period up to 1336, just before the start of the Hundred Years' War. It begins with the last century of Anglo-Saxon rule - an age of murders, treachery and 'evil times' - and covers the Norman period and the Plantagenets, culminating in the murder of Edward II. As editor, Joseph Rawson Lumby (1831-95) has been criticised for oversights, errors and omissions. Nevertheless, his detailed contents and marginalia make the Latin text more accessible to the modern reader
