A cartulary is a medieval manuscript volume or roll of a specific institution that records its rights, privileges, and properties. First published in 1958, Medieval Cartularies of Great Britain provides a full listing of all monastic and secular cartularies from England, Scotland, and Wales. Widely regarded as an indispensible tool for the study of British history during the Middle Ages, the original edition is here fully updated and substantially revised in order to include information about cartularies that have changed hands, newly come to light, or have been studied and edited since the volume’s first publication fifty years ago. Taking into account enrolled evidences and the cartularies of corporations omitted in the original version, this revised edition enables the reader to determine at a glance the current location, dating, and former ownership of any individual cartulary.
