He has not there- fore scrupled to digress widely with that object, and the intended narrative of a day has insensibly swelled into a sketch of many years; but on con- sidering the importance of that period of British history, it did not appear that justice would other- wise be done to the subject.


Surprise may well be felt by those who are not conversant with the rude materials from which History has to be constructed, at the confusion and contradictions of the various chronicles relating to these times: Much of their discrepancy, however, becomes corrected by the authentic test of public documents, and much by a due considera- tion of the circumstances of the writers.

While party bias, for they had party even in those days, often induced some to distort facts, others, from the seclusion of their habits, had no means of accurately ascertaining even contemporary events; not a few wrote a century too late for collecting original evi- dence, and many in their indiscriminate records did not refuse even ” profane and old-wives’ fables.

The weight of each witness thus requiring adjustment in the balance, a list of the principal references has been subjoined, somewhat explanatory of their re- lative value. Several specimens of the quaint but characteristic poetry of the age have been purposely introduced in evidence of the opinions then current, and the aspect of their antique phraseology has been occasionally rendered less forbidding by translation.

The following pages were not intended as a dis- quisition on the origin and nature of Parliaments, so ably treated by others, and being but ” an ancient tale new told,” may not present many new facts to the gonell student, yet it is hoped that the details, freshly gathered from their original sources, and here newly combined, may impart to some readers a clearer view or a warmer interest in so remark- able a crisis of British history.

After Mr Blaauw’s death, I learned that he had been preparing a second edition of the Barons’ War when he was struck down by the iUness that even- tually carried him off. There was a difficulty in finding any one who could see the sheets through the press. Under these circumstances I volimteered to give what aid I could.

When the papers came into my hands, I foimd that the author had scarcely touched the text except to make a few verbal cor- rections, most of which gonsl been suggested to him by his friend, the well-known archaeologist, Mr Weston S. On the other hand there was a mass of notes, many of which were quotations from modern authors or picturesque extracts from chronicles that had struck Mr Blaauw’s fancy.

Al- together, I think, several pages had been transcribed from Jocelin de Brakelond. It was clearly unneces- sary to reprint these, and I have therefore had the difficult task of sifting what was to be retained from editor’s preface.

My practice has been to keep all that was derived from unprinted sources, and all that related to family history: In a few cases where Mr Wal- ford’s notes had not been transcribed by Mr Blaauw I believe merely from the interruption of illnessI have added them and distinguished them by the letters W. I need not say that no care of an editor can in any appreciable degree replace the last touchings and remodellings of an author. Nevertheless judged by what it is, I believe Mr Blaauw’s work will long continue to hold a high place among works of its kind.

I confess to thinking that the Barons’ War is even now unsurpassed as a editor’s preface. Some day it will no doubt be superseded, for there are still unused records to be drawn upon. So thorough and modest a student as Mr Blaauw would have been the first to disclaim the praise of having left nothing for his successors to add: I have to return my best thanks to Mr F. Luard, who besides doing me the same good oflfice, has supplied many valuable corrections throughout the book.
