15th-century English manuscript containing three Middle English texts: 'Liber maundevyle'; the chivalric poem 'Sir Cleges'; and, 'De regimine principum' by Thomas Hoccleve
Description(i) 'Liber maundevyle', a version of Mandeville's Travels; several leaves are missing (folio 1); (ii) 'Sir Cleges', a verse romance (folio 71); (iii) 'De regimine principum' by Thomas Hoccleve; two leaves containing verses 739-754 are missing after folio 172 (folio 80). Each of the three texts is in a different hand but they were probably put together at an early date as the titles and some marginal notes in (i) and (iii) appear to be in one 15th-century hand. There are numerous scribblings, verses and drawings in slightly later hands.
