LE LIVERE DE REIS de Brittanie e le livere de reis de Engletere. Edited by John Glover.

London: Longman, [et. al.], 1865. Royal 8vo, pp. 4, xx, 400, 16; 1 folding facsimile in color; ex-library copy with usual markings, pages slightly browned, small crack in upper hinge, extremities and spines rubbed, small cracks and chips at spine ends, covers slightly scuffed, else good or better in contemporary quarter brown morocco gilt over black paper-covered boards. Two chronicles of the kings of Great Britain, both in French. The first chronicle is a summary, while the second gives more details of the reigns. The original chronicle ends at 1274, at the beginning of Edward I's reign; the Wroxham and Sempringham continuations extend the chronicle to 1326. These documents are of interest to the philologist as examples of 13th-century written French in England; Glover provides a facing English translation. Item #13857
