The Crowland Chronicle Continuations 1459-1486

£150.00

Product description

Rare and important First Edition published in 1986 by Alan Sutton Publishing for the Richard III and Yorkist History Trust.

Edited by Nicholas Pronay & John Cox. The Crowland Chronicles Continuations 1459-1486, are among the major sources for late 15th century English history, containing information found nowhere else on crucial events, including those of the reign of Richard III. Before publication they had hitherto only been available in a 19th century English translation and a 17th century Latin version. This book represented the first scholarly edition and is now out of print. It contains a long Introduction which includes a discussion of the vexed question of the authorship, and parallel Latin and English texts. Published for the 500th anniversary os the Continuations.

The Croyland Chronicle/Crowland Chronicle is an important, if not always reliable, primary source for English medieval history, in particular the late fifteenth century. It was written at the Benedictine Abbey of Croyland, in Lincolnshire, England, on and off from 655 to 1486, and its first author claimed to be 'Ingulph' or 'Ingulf' of Croyland'. This author is now referred to as Pseudo-Ingulf.

The part that covers the years 1459–1486 was written in April 1486 (after Henry Tudor had become Henry VII of England) by someone who had access to information from the court of Richard III—described as being a doctor of canon law and member of Edward IV's council. Some historians believe that author was John Russell, Bishop of Lincoln, who was Richard's Chancellor for most of his reign (until Richard dismissed him on July 24, 1485) but who now wanted to please the new king Henry. Others conclude the work was written by a monk of Crowland who has edited a secular source.

In very good condition throughout, complete with unclipped dust jacket. The DJ has some marks and edge rubbing wear with a small closed tear at the base of the spine. The boards are clean and bright, the text pages are 'as new' and binding tight.
