  • An excellent and complete series of the yearbooks for Henry VI, the majority in the earliest editions suggested by STC. Some of the yearbooks are slightly soiled or stained at beginning and end, indicative of separate use, but from internal evidence it seems that the collection has been bound together at least since the middle of the sixteenth century.
