Chronica maiora (1272-1392)
CCCC MS 195 contains a copy of Thomas Walsingham OSB (d. c. 1422), Chronica maiora. The majority of the text was copied in the second quarter of the fifteenth century, but lacunae have been filled in a sixteenth-century hand with a version of the text perhaps taken from London, College of Arms MS Arundel VII. This manuscript, which was once in the hands of the historian John Bale (1495-1563) before passing to Parker, was used by Parker as the basis for his edition of the Historia breuis published in 1574.
