330 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w illustrations, genealogical charts. "From a collection of Tudor letters - one of the most important yet discovered - Barbara Winchester has produced the portrait of an ordinary, middle-class f amily living in sixteenth-century England. John Johnson, a merchant of the Staple, was in many ways an exemplary man, as diligent in business as in the ordering of his domestic affairs. He preserved the letters he received from his wife - a c h a r m i ng and impetuous creature - as well as those from his brothers, relations and friends whose tangled troubles he was sometimes called upon to straighten out. From these letters and from the accounts he kept emerges a complete pictu re of th e pe ri od a s it was reflected in the lives of a typical bourgeois family. What is necessary for the background has been supplied with scrupulous and scholarly skill...."
