This four-volume set of Latin chronicles was edited by Richard Howlett (1841-1917) and published between 1884 and 1889. Volume 1 contains the first four books of the Historia rerum Anglicarum by William of Newburgh (c.1136-c.1198), which is still a valuable source of information on twelfth-century England. Volume 2 contains the fifth book of Historia rerum Anglicarum, and its continuation by another hand up to 1298, plus the Draco Normannicus of Etienne de Rouen. Volume 3 includes the Gesta Stephani regis Anglorum, the Relatio de standardo of St Aelred, abbot of Rievaulx, and chronicles by Richard, prior of Hexham, Jordan Fantosme, and Richard of Devizes. Volume 4 contains the work of Robert of Torigni (c.1110-86), abbot of Mont Saint-Michel, whose chronicle is especially informative for the reign of Henry II, and the Continuatio Beccensis.
