Studer mistakenly dated 1426/7 account as 1427/8. Account for 1426/7 is divided into part one covering northern trade and part two covering Mediterranean (mainly Italian) trade, and is printed in full. Only selections from the account for 1429/30 are printed. Appendix contains tables summarizing imports and exports (121-42). Glossary (143-60); Index of Ports and Boats and Index of Persons (161-79)
Introduction (pp. v-xxviii) discusses the manuscript and its author, the rise of the port of Southampton and its trade. Includes extensive glossary of Anglo-Norman words since Studer was a language expert.
