Rerum Britannicarum Medii Ævi Scriptores, or Chronicles and Memorials of Great Britain and Ireland during the Middle Ages
This work, commonly known as the Rolls Series, was published from 1858 to 1911. Herbert Thurston wrote: "The vast bulk of the texts . . . are in Latin, and these are printed without translation. Those in old French, Anglo-Saxon, Irish, Gaelic, Welsh, old Norse, etc. always have a translation annexed" ("Rolls Series", Catholic Encyclopedia, 1913, volume 13). Texts (including those in Latin) are accompanied by a commentary in English. Some volumes are entirely in English. For a partial index of the volumes, see 'Catalogue of Record Publications on Sale': [1] [2].
