The present volume extends from the year 1484 to the year 1492, corresponding to the pontificate of Innocent VIII, and comprises the contents, so far as they come within the scope of this Calendar, of the Vatican and Lateran Registers of that Pope.
The Calendar was compiled many years ago by the late Mr. J. A. Twemlow, M.A., Professor Emeritus and sometime Reader of Palaeography at Liverpool University. The Index of Persons and Places is the work of the Reverend John Brady; and the Index of Subjects has been compiled by Mr. R. L. Storey, M.A. PH.D., an Assistant Keeper of the Public Records.
The Irish Manuscripts Commission has made itself responsible for the future volumes in this series.
