Fascinating special issue of the journal Parliamentary History is out.  Issue 2 of volume 27 contains texts and studies relating to Parliament in the long 15th century.  Articles cover Parliamentary privilege, elections, payment, and other issues.  Three appendices cover a calendar of disputes over wages, a list of peers and members of the commons mentioned in the documents, and and a list of parliaments from 1376-1514.

This period includes the period of the devestation and depopulation relating to the Black Death, the War of the Roses, and the rise of the Tudors.
