A cartulary is a medieval manuscript volume or roll of a specific institution, recording its rights, privileges and properties.

Medieval Cartularies of Great Britain and Ireland by G R C Davis was first published in 1958, and provides a full listing of all monastic and secular cartularies from England, Scotland and Wales. It is widely regarded as an indispensable tool for the study of British history during the Middle Ages. This new edition is substantially revised. Many of the cartularies recorded in the original edition have changed hands in the intervening fifty years; several more have subsequently come to light (including examples from Athelney Abbey, St Andrews Cathedral Priory, and the Hotot and Kay families); and numerous others have been studied and edited since Medieval Cartularies was originally published.
