Out of twenty-seven plates, twenty-four are devoted to reproductions of original instruments, drafts and extracts from other types of records: on these, with the help of the accompanying transcripts, the newcomer to medieval research will be able to practise his reading of royal business hands, compare these hands, and study their evolution. The three remaining plates illustrate the methods used for sealing documents with the great seal, privy seal and signet. The introduction gives a brief account of English royal diplomatic - descent, formulation and methods of production of royal documents - before and after 1200." Contents: Introduction: I.
