Abstract: Contains 330 charters and documents dated before the death of King John. It is arranged as an “analytic digest of charters granted to burgesses of boroughs in the British Isles, and of a large selection of writs of similar import.” Follows the arrangement borrowed from Maitland’s chapter on the English borough in the thirteenth century. Chief source for the documents listed is the Charter Rolls in the PRO, using the printed calendar and indexes. Later volumes cover the years 1216-1307 (1923) and 1307-1660 (1943).
