This book contains a selection of Matthew Paris' chronicles, which were written during the reign of Henry III (1216-1272) while the writer was a monk at St. Albans. It is not a full chronicle.

The content is nicely edited and features some of Paris' best drawings. A nice addition to a medieval shelf.
