This book was produced to accompany the exhibition held at the Grolier Club from March 29 to May 26, 2000. The items in this catalogue are from the collection of Arthur L. Schwarz. Divided into seven sections, chapters include: Images of Royalty on Paper, Wax, and Leather; Pomp and Circumstance; Succession and its Stumbling Blocks; Social Commentary; Royal, Civil, and Ecclesiastical Architecture; The English Reformation; and Humor. The items in the collection have appealed to the collector for their subjects, and also as artifacts. Some of the books are open to interesting illustrations or to relevant passages. An introduction, a chart of England's royal line of succession, and an index of exhibited items are also included. The catalogue was printed by the Ascensius Press.
