Description

This work is a modern translation of James Yonge's manuscript, "The Gouernaunce of Prynces", which was originally completed by a Dominican scholar in 1422. Yonge's text has been noted as one of the primary documents written during the English occupation of Ireland, but until now, his work was only available to scholars literate in Middle English. This book facilitates additional information and a better understanding of the work.
