An exceedingly scarce edition of "The Muniments of the Ancient Saxon Family of Wingfield" by Mervyn Edward and The Wingfield Family Society, from 1987. "From the Archives in the British Museum, College of Arms, and Records Office, Dublin, and from Other Sources." More information: "The republication of this book commemorated nine hundred years of recorded history of the Wingfield family, from the Doomsday Book of 1087 to 1987." This volume is the revised copy to update the Wingfield's family legacy to 1987 from the original, published in 1894. This is very large volume, measuring 12" x16" with beautiful full-page lithographic illustrations of the Wingfield history. The boards and binding are solid and tight. The pages are crisp and clean save for some very light spots of foxing on the inside boards and corresponding blank pages. No other interior markings. A very rare and scarce genealogical history of one of the most famous longstanding royal families in United Kingdom, for your collection.
