The text features over 200 cases showing the religious of medieval England petitioning over tax rebates, complaints against royal officials, disputes with neighbours and tradesmen, national politics, international warfare, coastal erosion and higher education. Also included are English summaries, explanatory notes and an extensive introduction. 302 pp.The dust jacket is intact and shows only minimal shelf wear. The front has a reproduction of Monks Kneeling before St Edmund in John Lydgate's 'The Fall of Princes'. The binding is tight and the gilt lettering and designs on the front cover are still bright.
