Knighton's Chronicle 1337-1396 by Henry Knighton( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and Latin and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Knighton, a canon of St Mary's Abbey, Leicester, wrote his Chronicle between 1378 and 1396. The Chronicle contains exceptionally vivid accounts of the campaigns in France, in which Duke Henry was one of Edward III's leading generals, of the onset and effects of the Black Death, and of the crises of Richard II's reign
Chronicon Henrici Knighton; vel, Cnitthon, monachi leycestrensis by Henry Knighton( Book )

57 editions published between 1889 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 345 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 2 begins in 1337 at the start of the Hundred Years' War and closes in a time of comparative peace under the rule of Richard II. Included in this volume is Joseph Rawson Lumby's editorial introduction, essentially a précis of the text in which he details expansions upon and divergences from Knighton's sources as well as instances of independent authority. 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

Chronicon Henrici Knighton vel Cnitthon, Monachi Leycestrensis, Volume 1 by Henry Knighton( )

1 edition published in 1889 in English and held by 4 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
