The Fine Rolls were the earliest rolls kept by the English royal chancery. Recording offers of money to the king for all manner of concessions and favours, they are central to the study of political, governmental, legal, social and economic history. The reign of Henry III [1216-1272] is a particularly rich period for surviving documents; there are some 56 rolls preserved in the National Archives, one for each regnal year. However, despite the light they shed on politics, government, and society, they have never previously been properly edited or published, and these fully-indexed volumes - covering the period up to 1248 - will therefore be widely welcomed. The Latin rolls are presented in English translation, with all identifiable place-names modernised, although the original forms are preserved; and each volume includes full person, place and subject indexes. This second volume covers as important and dramatic a period of English history as does the first. The years between 1224 and 1234 witnessed the issue of the final and definitive version of Magna Carta, the ending of the king's minority, his French campaign of 1230, the fall of the justiciar, Hubert de Burgh in 1232, the subsequent regime of Peter des Roches, bishop of Winchester, the civil war which followed Peter's apparent defiance of Magna Carta, and finally in 1234 the restoration of lawful consensual rule.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Exemplifies Boydell's usual high standards of production. ECONOMIC HISTORY REVIEW The second volume in this series of published fine rolls from the reign of Henry III is very much to be welcomed. [...] As in Volume I, the indexes to Volume II are commendably full and accurate. The team that David Carpenter has assembled is in the process of providing a lasting monument to scholarship. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW (parts I, II and III reviewed together) Hard to fault in both their purpose and execution [...] they fill a significant gap in both the published records of the period.
