Auchinleck manuscript. This document, presented to the Advocates' Library by Alexander Boswell of Auchinleck (1744), now in the National Library of Scotland, is one of the most important surviving manuscripts of pre-Chaucerian poetry (assigned 1330–40). Its wide-ranging miscellany of religious and secular material, dominated by metrical romances, is almost entirely in English.
