"With the present work, the series Documentary Sources of Maltese History is now seeing its fifteenth volume, the fifth in the sub-series, dedicated to the Chancery records held at Palermo. The first four volumes covered the years 1259- 1500 and the present one extends the span to 1515. The gap, down to 1530, is closing fast; after that year, with the arrival of the Order of St John in Malta, these records cease to occupy the centre-stage in Maltese political and administrative affairs. The contents of the present volume - a total of 405 documents - are particularly significant because they cover neatly the gap in local municipal records - The Acta Juratorum et Consilii Civitatis et Insulae Maltae - which, for the sixteenth century, only start at 1512. Like the previous volumes in this sub-series, the present on continues to provide interested readers and, particularly, researches, with important details of the royal government of these islands without which the solid historiographical basis for the period would be lacking. This is particularly so for Gozo, practically all of whose records are still missing after the 1551 tragedy." -Henry Frendo, General Editor
