This chronicle of London was compiled in Anglo-Norman French in the middle of the fourteenth century. Like most city chronicles this text records the names of the mayors and sheriffs of London, describes the events transpiring in that city and notes events of national importance.
The introduction (pp. i-xxi) describes the manuscript edited in this volume, lists other manuscripts that the editor has consulted and gives some context about the historical period to which this text refers.
