Summary expansion
Trevisa made his translation under the patronage of Sir Thomas Berkeley, baron of Berkeley in Gloucestershire, whose vicar and family chaplain Trevisa was from 1374 until 1402. The manuscript, owned by Senshu University in Tokyo, Japan, is one of a group of de luxe copies probably produced in London workshops in the early 15th century at the request of Sir Thomas for distribution among his relatives and acquaintances. It also served as the basis of William Caxton's edition of the Polychronicon printed in 1482; see "Foreword," by Ronald A. Waldron, page iii
