Higden seems to have disseminated multiple versions of his work, and five branches are designated by MS sigla A, B, C, D and E. The edited version designated E, based on Cambridge, University Library MS Ii. 3.1, undoubtedly represents Higden's final version or close to it and is based on the autograph MS HM 132. Among the other versions, that now represented by manuscripts C and D is the oldest, probably finished around 1327 and disseminated locally. Although the versions A and B are intermediate and datable to ca. 1340, they were the most popular. AB texts resemble the short CD version but have additions throughout. The E version is the fullest, and the USC manuscript preserves this text

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of John Trevisa's rhetorical arguments for the value, necessity, and authority of translation in his English 'Polychronicon'. John Trevisa was one of the most prodigious translators living in England in the fourteenth century. His numerous translations of works from Latin into English helped to ensure the creation and perpetuation of late-medieval vernacular history, literature, and culture in Britain. His translation of the 'Polychronicon', a universal history of the world originally compiled by Ranulf Higden, is both his magnum opus and his opportunity to present rhetorical arguments for the value, necessity, and authority of translation. Through his paratextual 'Dialogue between a Lord and a Clerk on Translation' and prefatory letter to Lord Thomas Berkeley as well as his intertextual explanatory notes to the 'Polychronicon', John Trevisa explores the tasks of the translator
