Manuscript on paper of a collection of material copied primarily by William Camden, antiquary and historian (1551-1623), from documents, 14th-16th centuries, that were in the Tower of London and in the College of Arms. Some selections are from official records, others are from private papers that were deposited in the Office of Arms. The manuscript is composed of four parts, the first two of which are laid in.
