The Anglo-Saxon chronicle, according to the several original authorities by Benjamin Thorpe( Book )

3 editions published in 1861 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benjamin Thorpe (1781/2-1870) was a scholar of Old English and Member of the Royal Academy of Sciences at Munich. Through his work, he sought to promote the study of the old vernacular, against the trend of scholarly apathy towards Anglo-Saxon literature. One of his greatest contributions was this two-volume edition, published as part of the Rolls Series in 1861, of the oldest and most important chronological accounts of Anglo-Saxon affairs. Covering the period from Julius Caesar's invasion of Britain to around the accession of Henry II in 1154, this volume brings together seven manuscripts in their entirety, arranged in columns to illustrate variation, and given in the original Old English with notes. As none are the original, the authorship is unknown, although Thorpe argues that several elements indicate the influence of King Alfred (848/9-899) upon the chronicle's compilation. The text provides rich insights into Old English language, dialect and history

The Anglo-Saxon chronicle by Bob Carruthers( Book )

8 editions published between 1909 and 2007 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The so-called Anglo-Saxon chronicle is not one continuous work, but is made up of annals written in the monasteries of Winchester, Canterbury, Peterborough, Abingdon and Worcester. In this volume the records are collated in such a way that there is no unnecessary repetition of material, and the arrangement of the texts follows the editions of J. Earle (1865) and C. Plummer (1892), by permission of the Oxford University Press. For today's reader, the long accounts of the Danish invasions and, later, of the unhappiness of Stephen's reign are probably the most immediately striking passages, but the whole work is full of interest, which is stimulated by the late Professor Garmonsway's introduction, a model of compressed scholarship
