NOTE ON BOOKS

As excellent bibliographies for this period are contained in several easily accessible works, the purpose of this note is simply to show the student the way to further study.


1. BIBLIOGRAPHIES

The basic general bibliographies are C. Ulysse J. Chevalier, Répertoire des sources historiques du mqyen-âge ( 1883-99) and A. Potthast, Bibliotheca historica medii aevi ( 1862-96), and, for English history, Carl Gross, The Sources and Literature of English History to about 1485 ( 1900) and Sir T. D. Hardy , Materials relating to the History of Great Britain and Ireland (Rolls Series, 3 Vols., 1862-71). But of greater use to the ordinary student will be the bibliographies given in the Cambridge Medieval History, vols. II, V, and VI and in the Oxford Histories ( Stenton and Poole); while in English Historical Documents, 1042-1189 (ed. D. C. Douglas and G. W. Greenaway, 1953), a valuable source book, are detailed and exhaustive lists arranged under subjects. All these bibliographies can be kept up to date with the help of the Annual Bulletin of Historical Literature published by the Historical Association.


2. STANDARD SECONDARY WORKS

W. J. Corbett's contribution to vol. II of the Cambridge Medieval History is still of value; but the most authoritative general history of the Anglo-Saxon period is Sir F. M. Stenton Anglo-Saxon England ( Oxford History of England, 1943). Stenton's impeccable original scholarship will give his book a long life; yet it should be noticed that there is much dissatisfaction in some historical circles with the underlying assumptions of the Freeman-Stubbs-Stenton school (the 'Germanists'), even when presented as reasonably as by Sir Frank Stenton. Dorothy Whitelock The Beginnings of English Society ( Pelican book, 1952) forms an interesting supplement.

For the later period A. L. Poole From Domesday Book to Magna Carta ( Oxford History of England, 1951) replaces all earlier histories, although the chapters by Corbett, Doris M. Stenton, and F. M. Powicke in the Cambridge Medieval History, vols. II, V, and VI, can still be read with profit. Dr. Poole's book, the work of many years, is especially valuable for its study of social and cultural conditions; and its arrangement according to subject matter makes it most useful for reference. Lady Stenton's unrivalled knowledge of legal and financial records makes her English Socieo in the Early Middle Ages ( Pelican book, 2nd ed., 1952) of quite exceptional value.

The standard history of Wales is J. E. Lloyd, A History of Wales from the Earliest Times to the Edwardian Conquest ( 2 vols., 2nd ed., 1939).
