Opinions of the Press

"The volume may be commended as learned and valuable.”Times.

“No one has done more to advance the study of our early constitutional history than Mr. Round, since the Bishop of Oxford ceased to write. In the volume before us Mr. Round has collected a series of historical studies of the eleventh and twelfth centuries. Among them is the brilliant study on knight-service in England which appeared in the pages of the English Historical Review."--Literary World.

“Mr. Round has already made himself a name as a minute, cautious and indefatigable historical inquirer. This book will preserve and increase his reputation."-Speaker.

“No one in this generation has done more for the study of Domesday than Mr. Round, and we heartily welcome the republication of his teachings and able papers.”—Manchester Guardian.

“The test of Mr. Round's merits is that the next generation will never want to know how much rubbish he has swept or helped to sweep away. He has done more than any one scholar to put us in the way of reading Domesday Book aright."- English Historical Review.

“The whole book leaves the stamp of deep research and of a singularly unbiassed mind."-Spectator.

GEOFFREY DE MANDEVILLE:

A Study of the Anarchy.

pp. xii., 461. “Mr. Round treats his subject with great learning and acumen.”- Times.

“For many reasons this is the most remarkable historical work which has recently appeared."-Spectator.

“It is not easy, within the limits of a review, to do justice to the learning and ability which characterise Mr. Round's study. Indeed few books so learned and suggestive have recently been published.”—Literary World.

“All the vivacity, keenness, freshness, and accuracy that have marked Mr. Round's previous writings.”— Manchester Guardian.

“The work is most skilfully and ably done, and a whole series of importan discoveries is derived from Mr. Round's efforts. . . . The result is a very large addition to our knowledge, the clearing-up of many doubtful points, and the opening-up of further possibilities of investigation. Mr. Round has carried through an undertaking which raises him to a foremost position among historical scholars."— Athenæum,

“Fresh life from dry records is what Mr. Round aims at . . . he has permanently associated his name with the scientific study of Anglo-Norman history." —DR. LIEBERMANN (English Historical Review).

“M. J. H. Round vient de nous donner une étude des plus pénétrantes et fécondes .. c'est un véritable modèle, et l'on doit souhaiter pour nos voisins qu'il fasse école."--Revue Historique.
