Excerpt

In this edition the pagination of the first edition has been retained. Additions and corrections have been included with slight alterations in the text and notes. A surprising amount of work on the period has been published since 1953, and doubtless more is soon to come; but I have not felt justified as yet in making any major changes in narrative or opinion.

PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION

MANY friends have helped me to write this book. I have acknowledged my debt to them in the footnotes and bibliography, but I wish here to give special thanks to Mr. J. C. Trabut-Cussac, who most generously placed at my service his unpublished treatise on Edward I and Gascony, also to Professors T. Jones Pierce and W. C. Dickinson for their guidance on problems of Welsh and Scottish social history and bibliography.

The Bibliography is intended, in part, as a guide, with a running commentary, to the study of matters which I have had to omit or could mention only incidentally in the course of the narrative. References to the more unusual books and articles noticed in the footnotes and bibliography are indexed under the names of their authors, which are printed in italics.

Finally, I beg to thank the Editor of the History and the Secretary and his colleagues at the Clarendon Press for their friendly and helpful interest in a book which departs, more than do previous volumes in the series, from its original plan.
