Descripción

Letter: 4to, 1 p (32 lines); and 8vo, 2 pp (42 lines) in bifolium. Total of 74 lines. Texts of letter and offprint clear and complete. Both on aged and creased paper, and attached to one another by archival tape. Offprint 4to, 8 pp (paginated 81-88). I n the letter Greenhill writes 'My acquaintance with Somerset brasses is but scanty, all I ever rubbed being at Hutton, Cheddar, Churchill, Wedmore, St Mary Redcliffe, Bristol, Crewkerne, and the Strode brass at Shepton Mallet. Since 1922 I have gone over to incised slabs, of which I now have rubbings or photographs of nearly 600 with effegies'. He gives a list of those he has found in Somerset, and asks for assistance in finding more. Discusses inscriptions, matrices, dates and the 'civilian with academic hood at North Petherton'. Badham and Norris's 'Early incised slabs and brasses from the London marblers' (Society of Antiquaries of London, 1999) is dedicated to Norris, sixty years of whose 'leisure time' is said to have been dedicated to researching the subject.
