W.769, English Brasses


Calligrapher John Woodcock handwrote, illustrated, and bound this book on English brasses. The manuscript contains drawings of brass rubbings of many knights and nobles, including Sir John d'Abernon, Thomas de Hope, and Nichol de Gore, as well as noblewomen such as the wives of Reginald de Malyns, Nicholas Wadham, and Nicholas Wotton. The names and dates in the titles for the images are based directly on the green ink inscriptions accompanying the illuminations.
