John Prise. Historiae Britannicae Defensio / A Defence of the British History

Edited and translated by
Ceri Davies

John Prise. Historiae Britannicae Defensio / A Defence of the British History Studies and Texts

Studies and Texts 195; British Writers 6 • liv, 336 pp. • ISBN 978-0-88844-195-9 • Cloth • $150

Co-published with The Bodleian Library (ISBN 978-1-85124-436-2).  

The present work brings John Prise’s Historiae Britannicae Defensio back into print for the first time since 1573, when an edition was published by the author’s son, Richard Prise. The 1573 printing forms the copy-text, critically edited in the light of the one surviving manuscript (Oxford, Balliol College, MS 260) of a version which is very close to it, and drawing also on an earlier draft (in BL MS Cotton Titus F. III). The facing English translation is the first published translation of the Defensio. The work is accompanied by an extensive introduction and elucidatory notes.

William Caxton’s translation of the prose Ovide Moralisé was the first English version of Ovid's Metamorphoses.
