The National and Domestic History of England (Vol 1) (page 1/3)

details...

Pictures and short extracts from The National and Domestic History of England Volume I (A.D. 1399 – 1603), by William Hickman Smith Aubrey (1858 – 1916). The book is undated, but is probably 1878, since I found someone selling a copy with an inscription dated 1879.

In 2015 I bought the three-volume set from Bookends of Fowey in Cornwall, UK. Previously I had only Volume II and part of volume III.

Mediæval King

The King here is taken from the coloured plate Costumes A.D. 1200 – 1300; he is standing, wearing a golden crown and a pink robe with gold embroidery of solid lines and the fleur-de-lys and cross; over his shoulder is a green cape with a blue and white lining bearing an heraldic theme; on his feet are diamons-pattened yellow pointed shoes that might really just be little more substantial than socks; in his right hand he [...] [more...] [$]

A boat is parked [...] [more...] [$]
