The ordines coronationis are essentially the scripts for the coronation of Frankish and French sovereigns. Combining detailed religious, ceremonial, and political material, they are an extraordinarily important source for the study of individual rulers or dynasties, as well as for the study of kingship, queenship, and the evolution of political institutions. Complete in two volumes, Richard A. Jackson's is the first full edition of these texts, including all the ordines from the early thirteenth century through the end of the fifteenth century, a period during which the texts shift from Latin to the vernacular, and the institutions of kingship become distinctively French.

Author William Armstrong Crozier originally published the contents of Virginia County Records, in magazine format. When the periodical was terminated, ten volumes in the first series and one in a new series had been published. With the exception of Volume I (New Series), which focuses on Westmoreland County, the articles in these books range over numerous Virginia counties and record categories. Four volumes in the first series (VI, VII, IX and X ) are miscellaneous in nature; however, since their contents were originally prepared for publication in a periodical, researchers will find that the same record subject (e.g., Accomack County Land Grants) is often treated in more than one volume. In such cases, researchers may wish to acquire all the Miscellaneous volumes related to their county(ies) of interest. This volume and Volume I (New Series) are on sale at the present time.
