Excerpt from The Monumental Brasses of Wiltshire: A Series of Examples of These Memorials, Ranging From the Thirteenth to the Seventeenth Centuries, Accompanied With Notices Descriptive of Ancient Costume, and Generally Illustrative of the History of the County During This Period
The limited notice which the various examples of Monumental Brasses remaining in Wiltshire have hitherto met with, induced the Author to coiled: rubbings of and information relating to them. This was, at first, intended to form a series of short papers in the Magazine of the Wiltshire Archaeological and Natural History Society; but, on consideration, it seemed desirable that it should rather, if possible, appear in a separate form. A Prospectus was accordingly issued, inviting Subscribers' names for this purpose; and the very kind manner in which it was responded to has led to the publication of the present work.
As it is intended chiefly for a book of reference, the greatest possible care has been taken to ensure accuracy, both in the illustrations and letterpress. The former (with one exception) are produced from, the Author's own drawings, either by the Anastatic process or on wood; and some of the more difficult subjects reduced by the aid of photography.
