Listed here, in a table of contents, are the chapters of Magna Carta 1225 with a description of their contents. The chapters are numbered between 1 and 53. This is an unusually large number, many copies having around 37 chapters as in the final printed versions. The 1225 Forest Charter follows with twenty chapters. The text of the Charters themselves is missing.
