"This book represents an early fruit of one of the British Academy's most prestigious research projects, the compilation of a comprehensive Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources [...] Baxter and Johnson's Medieval Latin Word-List from British and Irish Sources appeared in 1934 and was reprinted five times. The distinguished lexicographer, R.E. Latham based this Revised Word-List on a re-examination of the material previously used, and supplemented it with new material from a wide range of sources -- more than doubling the number of words covered"--Dust jacket

A history of the English Church and people by Bede ( Book )
19 editions published between 1955 and 1993 in English and French and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Written in AD 731, Bede's work opens with a background sketch of Roman Britain's geography and history. It goes on to tell of the kings and bishops, monks and nuns who helped to develop Anglo-Saxon government and religion during the crucial formative years of the English people. Leo Sherley-Price's translation brings us an accurate and readable version, in modern English, of a unique historical document. This edition now includes Bede's Letter to Egbert concerning pastoral care in early Anglo-Saxon England, at the heart of which lay Bede's denunciation of the false monasteries; and The Death of Bede, an admirable eye-witness account by Cuthbert, monk and later Abbot of Jarrow, both translated by D.H. Farmer
