Chronicles and historical works, written in England
DescriptionA fifteenth-century English manuscript containing miscellanous documents and tables concerning secular and ecclesiastical histories, such as the 'Scala mundi', a compilation of historical and genealogical tables from the Creation (folio 1 verso). A similar manuscript of this text is in Trinity College, Cambridge, MS. 645. The chronology goes up to 1519, but apart from a few additions in later hands, the last entry is the accession of Albert the Great in 1438. The tables include lunar and solar years, the dates of Easter, and lists of popes, emperors and kings. - The work is followed by a number of shorter historical works, verse and prophecies.
