Overview

This first of two volumes of Latin chronicles illustrating the reigns of Edward I (1272–1307) and Edward II (1307–27) was published in 1882. These works contain material not found in any other source for the period. The first text included here is a collection of the surviving fragments of the Annales Londonienses, much of which was destroyed by fire in 1731, but which originally provided a year-by-year narration of the events from 1194 to 1330. Despite a complete break between 1293 and 1301, it remains especially valuable for the years 1289–1316. The Annales Paulini, from the hand of a chronicler associated with St Paul's, features closely related and sometimes overlapping material dealing with the years 1307–41. The often corrupt texts were restored, edited and provided with English side-notes by William Stubbs (1825–1901), whose lengthy introduction specifies the contents of each chronicle and details the history of the transmission and publication of the manuscripts.
