A semi-diplomatic edition of BL MS Cotton Tiberius A vi, probably written in 977-8, probably at Abingdon. It is the first complete and separate publication of B Version of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, B being the primary witness to a 10th-century recension of the Chronicle, and an authority of greater textual importance than MS A for the period from 924. `One may recommend this book as a happy illustration of how much useful and interesting information a diligent editor may prize from an apparently unpromising source -- The general editors have clearly given much thought to the system of textual and editorial conventions, which are in every case clear and readily intelligible'PERITIA.
