This work is based upon a medieval manuscript that was owned by Sir John Maxwell, of Pollock, in the Renfrewshire area near Glasgow. It describes Scottish history from the era of the Battle of Floddon and the death of King James the Fourth in 1513 to the end of the government of the Earl of Arran in 1553. The anonymous author lived in Edinburgh and spent time at the Royal Court.
