The Latin text of Ingulph s History of the Abbey of Croyland was first published in Sir Henr) Saville s Scriptores post Bedam, London, 1596, reprinted at Frankfort in 1601. In these editions the work appears in a mutilated form, as, besides various omissions, it abruptly terminates with Ingulph sreturn from his visit to the court of William the Conqueror; and, in common with the other Chronicles contained in the same volume, is disfigured by numerous typographical errors. The work was first printed entire, and Bomewhat revised, in the first, or Fulman s, Volume of Gale s Collection of the llerum A nglicarum Scriptores, Oxford, 1684. Though a great improvement on Saville sedition, it is not without a considerable number of errors in the orthography of the English words. The narrative commences witli the reign of Penda, who died in 655, and terminates in tlie year 1091. In the same volume was also published the Continuation by Peter of Blois. Though this professes to have been written as a Continuation of Ingulph s Historj at the request of A bl)at Henry de Longchamp, it notices but very few facts prior to 00, the first year of the reign of Henrj T.
