About this Title:

The text, translation, and commentary have been taken from William Sharp McKechnie’s edition of 1914. The lengthly historical introduction and appendices have been removed for reasons of space. The 63 clauses are in Latin and English, and they are followed by McKechnie’s commentary. McKechnie’s edition was published for the 700th anniversary of the signing of the Charter in 1215. Ours is published for its 800th anniversary.
