Product description


Lawson's book is replete with enticing goodies (Gerit Quealy, Huffington Post)

admirable ... Jane Lawson's edition of all the surviving gift rolls kept by the Elizabethan Jewel House to record gifts received and given by the Crown at New Year provides a fascinating journey through the plate, jewels, clothing and scribal books that reflect the brilliance of the late-sixteenth-century court. (Felicity Heal, English Historical Review)

a work of consummate scholarly endeavor that should be consulted by any academic active in research on Elizabeth's court - the likelihood that one will find a reference relevant to one's research is high. (Samuel Morrison Gallacher, Sixteenth Century Journal)
