Abstract

A manuscript bought privately by the collector Evan Holzwasser will be of interest to readers of this journal. It was written in 1533 and has monetary value because it contains the signature of King Henry VIII, at that time in the fifteenth year of his reign. I was contacted by Mr Holzwasser for advice about the persons mentioned in the manuscript and am grateful to him for his permission to publish this short article with a reproduction of the manuscript and its transcription.
