Record title: Cofferers' Accounts of the Gild Merchant
Repository location: Reading
The early surviving rolls in the 'Cofferers' Accounts' from 1413–14 to 1428–9 are badly faded, damaged, and in some cases fragmentary (see Slade, Reading Gild Accounts, pt 1, pp xi–xii). When they were read by Macray for the Historical Manuscripts Commission in 1888 ('Corporation of Reading,' pp 161–227), more of the writing on the rolls was legible than it is now. For this edition, all were read under ultraviolet light. Although the manuscripts are badly damaged, all evidence supports an accounting year of Michaelmas to Michaelmas.
1420–1; Latin; parchment roll; 540mm x 280mm; written 1 side only; faded and repaired. This MS is the more legible duplicate of BRO: R/FA2/9.
