Not illustrated. 1859 Excerpt: ...ostendens tauri victoriam propter suas bonas conditiones, et quomodo in ilia obsidione recepit auxilium a dominis Angliae, continet quinque dicta. Primo ostendit quomodo taurus habebit victoriam de inimicis suis propter bonos mores suos, quos hie enumerat, dicens, Eulogium didici, i. bonum sermonem a Spiritu Sancto, quod, tauri perient inimici, i. Gallici obsessi in civitate de Calesia, qui propter famem equos et ratones comedebant, et multi mortui sunt in civitate per penuria, qui tandem civitatem regi obtulerunt; nam rex robustus in armis, hie quasi assignat rationem istius expeditionis, et quare rex iste est ita fortis in armis, quia est per singula justus, in vendicatione Franciae, et est rex bonus et fortis, i. virtute corporali; cut nulla nocent mala mortis, quia nec pestilentia nec gladius nec victoria, qui est rex nunquam victus, ab inimicis suis; gladii cui non nocet ictus, quia creditur quod illo tempore nunquam recepit ictum nocivum in bello; qui Emanuel est dictus, i. nobiscum Deus, quia Deus in omni tempore suo erit cum Anglicis. Cum quo fit copia victus, quia licet aliquando patiebatur in victualibus, nunquam tamen fuit aliquis rex in Anglia in cujus tempore tanta fuerat copia victualium. Et in mundo talis non est pugnans generalis, qui ita generaliter pugnat sicut iste rex.

Fine copies of the Rolls series are uncommon. The turbulent period covered in this set, which saw unprecedented military successes and the violent downfalls of kings, was rich in subject matter for contemporary political writers. Volume I contains thirty-five pieces in English, French and Latin, covering the reigns of Edward III and Richard II. It features poems by Gower and Deschamps, a commentary on a fictional prophecy, and the much-contested Speght text of Chaucer's apocryphal 'Complaint of the Ploughman'. Volume 2, covers the turbulent years between Henry IV and Edward IV, and includes forty-four pieces in English, French and Latin. The work is a fascinating example of Victorian scholarship and its expectations of readers.
