A Source Book for Mediaeval History
by E.H. McNeal, O.J. Thatcher
Publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons 1903
Number of pages: 598

We have not tried to make a complete source-book for the period, but only to offer in usable form illustrative material which may be of service to both teacher and student in general or information courses.
