Regesta Regum Anglo-Normannorum 1066-1154. Volume II: Regesta Henriici Primi 1100-1135

£9.99

Product description

Historical textbook of notable people and events from 1100-1135 during Henry I reign.

Preface: The first volume of this work was published in 1913, and the editors then believed that the second and third volumes would follow in quick succession. But the four years of war, which so soon followed, interrupted the task. Professor Davis was absorbed in the duties of the War Trade Intelligence Department, and his interests thenceforward were diverted to the problems of modern history. At his death, in 1928, the materials for the later volumes were substantially as he had left them in 1914. In 1930 the Delegates of the Clarendon Press, with the concurrence of Mrs. Davis, entrusted the task of continuing the Regesta to the elder of the present editors, who made haste to secure the help of a younger scholar, lest the work should again be interrupted by death. The slowness with which we executed our task is due in part to the necessity of learning by actual examination what sources had been exhausted and what remained unused: in part to the unevenness in the abstracts and descriptions inevitable in the co-operation of a number of voluntary helpers. A second war involved another period of delay in which research was impossible; and we are conscious that we have not entirely overcome either of our initial difficulties. We are, however, persuaded that even an imperfect catalogue is a step to a more perfect presentation of the acts of the Norman period, in which the full texts can be printed, and original charters reproduced in facsimile.

In preparing the present volume we have had the advantage of the late William Farrer's Itinerary of Henry I, printed in the English Historical Review in 1919, and issued separately with a valuable index. We cannot adequately express our obligations to Farrer's work; and though we have no always adopted his conjectural dates, we have rarely had to dissent from the limits of date which he fixed. We have followed his example in stating these, even when the documents are arranged according to the dates which we have thought probable. When a definite year is not assigned the charter are ranged under the later limiting date. We have included a number of charters which Farrer either did not know of or thought of no value for the construction of his Itinerary.

Some of the index pages are uncut and pages are lightly tarnished. Some discolouring on the front. Binding is very strong with all pages intact. Spine is intact with very clear gold glint. Inside text is very clear in top notch condition, showing clarity and readability despite very minor browning on the edges. Overall book is in very good condition with intact spine and seemingly seldom used.
