Ranulf Higden (d.1364) was a monk at the abbey of St Werburgh in Chester. His most important literary work is this universal chronicle, which survives in over a hundred Latin manuscripts, testifying to its popularity. The earliest version of it dates from 1327, but Higden continued writing until his death, expanding and updating the text. It was also continued in other monastic houses, most importantly by John Malvern of Worcester. The English translation made by John Trevisa in the 1380s was also widely circulated and is included in this work, published in nine volumes for the Rolls Series between 1865 and 1886. The chronicle shows how fourteenth-century scholars understood world history and geography. Volume 1 contains the first part of Book 1, which describes the historical geography of the known world

The description of Britain by Ranulf Higden( Book )

41 editions published between 1460 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally composed in Latin by Ranulf Higden, a Benedictine monk, the Polycronycon was a history of the world from the Creation to 1342. At the time of composition and over the course of the next two centuries, Higden's work was enormously popular, providing important source material on the Roman world, the Norman Conquest, the relationship of British history to a wider European context as well as geography and science (the work is also an important Arthurian source). The Polycronycon, which was continually revised, most importantly by John Malvern, is known from a large number of extant manuscripts before an English translation was commissioned by Thomas, Lord Berkeley from John Trevisa which was completed on 18th April 1387. Trevisa added a 'Descrypcion of Englonde', the first such undertaking in the vernacular and updated the history to 1377. It was Trevisa's translation that was first published by Caxton in 1482, with Caxton's own continuation of the history to 1460 and a table of contents" -- abebooks
