Pictures from Life and Work of the People of England: The Fourteenth Century by Dorothy Hartley (art teacher at the Polytechnic Institute, London) & Margaret M. Elliot, B.A. Lond. (St. Aloysius Secondary School, London.), Putnam’s, New York and London, 1929.

This book is one of a series; I have several others. I turns out that copyright was renewed for this publication on 28th Feb 1957, so it and the images in it are still under copyright.
