Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. Chronicon saxonicum: seu Annales rerum in Anglia pręcipue gestarum, a Christo nato ad annum usque MCLIV. deducti, ac jam demum latinitate donati. Cum indice rerum chronologico. Accedunt regulœ ad investigandas nominum locorum origines. Et nominum locorum ac virorum in chronico memoratorum explicatio. Ed. Edmund Gibson. Oxford: Sheldonian Theatre, 1692.

Edmund Gibson (1669-1748), Bishop of London, edited the second printed edition of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, which draws on Abraham Wheloc's 1643 edition (based on MS London, British Library, Cotton Otho B.xi, destroyed in the Ashburnham House fire of 1731); MS Oxford, Bodleian Library, Laud Misc. 636; and transcripts of MSS London, British Library, Cotton Tiberius and Domitian viii. Notre Dame's copy was once owned by Dorothy Whitelock, noted Anglo-Saxonist and the Elrington and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon at Cambridge (see bookplate), and is one of nine known library copies in North America.
