This chronicle was created with the encouragement of various friends, family, and colleagues. I also wish to thank my PhD supervisor Robert Rouse, along with the Department of English at the University of British Columbia, for their support throughout my dissertation project.

The research discussed in this chronicle was made possible by the CGS Michael Smith Foreign Study Supplement provided by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). Thanks also to the librarians at the British Library, British Museum, College of Arms, Balliol College, Bodleian Library, Cambridge University Library, Berkeley Library at Trinity College Dublin, Bibliothèque Publique de Dijon, University of Aberdeen Library, and Bibliothèque Nationale de France for their help in accessing manuscripts and incunabula.
