A. R. Myers's research in the history of late medieval England spanned more than forty years. Throughout his academic career 15th-century England, especially the documentary remnants of its administration, held his attention consistently though not exclusively. The relevant studies, fruits of his research in this field which were originally published in periodicals published over five decades, have here been brought together. As a corpus they provide a collection of important documents related to the crown, the royal household and parliament. Complete with a critical introduction by R. B. Dobson, this is the essential collection of the works of an influential historian of early modern England.
This copy is in very good condition. There is a non-authorial gift inscription to the ffep to Tom (J T Driver).
