This volume consists of numerous texts of the 14th and 15th centuries; they encompass a wide variety of materials, in Latin and French, prose and verse. All but the last two items were bound together by the 15th century, when they were owned by the Carmelite Convent in London. Before England was formed into a single kingdom, there were seven divisions, the Heptarchy, listed down the left-hand side of the page: Kent, Wessex, Mercia, etc. In the next column are the counties (Wiltshire, Berkshire, Dorset, Sussex, etc.), and in the last column the bishoprics (Canterbury, Rochester, Salisbury, Chichester, etc.)
