The James Catalogue was digitized then marked up following the TEI P5 Guidelines. The customized model was provided by Giuliano Di Bacco, stored in an ODD file (parkerweb.xml): the latter was written by GDB using ROMA vers. 2.x, with manual adaptations. The ODD file is used as a source to compile the actual schema used to validate the xml: it is advisable to compile it in RelaxNG sintax (parkerweb.rnc) through ROMA.

Chronicon S. Andreae in Antona Sempentrionalis (Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Annales a nativitate Christi ad annum 1339 (Content authored by Nasmith)
Ad imum primae paginae “Iste liber est de communitate Burtoniae, qui eum alienaverit anathema sit, Amen.” (Content authored by Nasmith)
Ex hac inscriptione codici quidem coaeva, folio vero non inscripta sed eidem agglutinata, hi annales a Parkero Jamesio et Stanley nominati sunt annales de Burton; recte tamen observavit Cl. Stanley eos ab impressis prorsus esse diversos. Codicem diligenter evolventi occurrerunt multa quae mihi fidem fecerunt eos a quodam monacho cenobii S. Andreae apud Northampton conscriptos esse. Primo enim notatur successio abbatum Cluniacensium, cujus ordinis fuit hoc cenobium: secundo, nulla fit mentio monasterii de Burton, sed fundatio domus S. Andreae per Simonem comitem de Northampton occurrit ad annum 1083, tertio, ad annum 1237 sunt haec verba “In hoc monasterio beati Andreae quoddam mirabile contigit.”
Usque ad annum 1206 eadem manu scribuntur, postea diversis; anno 1249 inseritur edictum Gallica lingua scriptum Edwardi I. quando Scotiam intravit, et genealogia eorum qui jus suum asseruerunt in illud regnum(Content authored by Nasmith)
In annalistic form. Years from Annus domini I: a line to each, every 10th year in red. Few entries at first
On a slip of vellum pasted on to f. 80r, Iste liber est de communitate burtonie qui eum alienauerit anathema sit. amen (xv late)
The page is headed in red and green capitals: Anni ab incarnatione Domini
There are a few late additions, e.g. at 141 a.d.: hic baptizati sunt nouem ex doctoribus et scolaribus cantebrigie
532 of Agapitus: hic instituit doctores sacre theologie
Great interest is shown in the Cluniac order and its saints
At 1083 is a later note: Hoc anno Simon comes Northamton edificauit domum Sancti Andree
1101 added: Item inuencio Sancte Milburge apud wenlok
The hand (probably two hands) preserves uniformity to the end of f. 98v (1140), an obviously different one begins at f. 99r leaving irregular spaces for the years. It continues to f. 103v (1206) and goes on writing the numbers of the years perhaps as far as 1218. But the entries are in different and smaller hands. There are many of these. They continue to f. 113v (1294)
114r
(35r)
Then intervenes a document of Edward I asserting his claim to Scotland
The hand of 1294 resumes on f. 117r with 1295 and goes on to 1303
On f. 118r a hand of much more current type begins and goes on to f. 125v (1330): a second hand of the same type continues to f. 127r (1339)
