In this volume

Claude Blair: The de Vere Effigy at Hatfield Broad Oak
Freestone military effigy of Robert de Vere I d.1221.

Discusses the development of  methods of attaching the scabbard to its belt. Suggests date of c.1315 for the monument and relates it to London School effigies at Westminster.

Janet Arnold: The Jupon or Coat-Armour of the Black Prince in Canterbury Cathedral.
Describes the jupon – its construction, materials and heraldry. Compares it to contemporary garments at Chartres and Lyon and two dimensional images of the 14C.

Philip J. Lankester: Two Lost Effigial Monuments in Yorkshire and the Evidence of Church Notes.
Examines evidence for two lost late medieval effigial monuments from church notes by heralds in 16 & 17C. Francis Thynne’s record of a 15C military effigy formerly at Escrick, Yorks, possibly of a Lascelles, and Henry Johnston’s record of an early 15C alabaster knight at South Cave, Yorks. Discusses the existence of additional copies of church notes made by Glover in Yorkshire at his visitation in 1584.

Jon Bayliss: A Dutch Carver: Garrett Hollemans l in England.
Traces Hollemans’ career, which probably started at Burton-on-Trent. Several Midland tombs are ascribed to him on stylistic grounds. The proximity of sources of alabaster might account for his presence in Burton rather than Southwark to which several other immigrant carvers went.

Jean Wilson: The Memorial by Nicholas Stone to Sir Thomas Bodley.
Analyses the iconographic programme of the mural memorial in Merton College Oxford and draws attention to similarities found on the tomb of Pope Sixtus IV by Pollaiuolo.

Philip Ward-Jackson: The French Background of Royal Monuments at Windsor and Frogmore

Traces the influences bearing on the monuments to Prince Albert and Queen Victoria commissioned in 1862. The monuments to members of the Orleans family and their sculptors, who were to work on the Windsor monuments, are discussed.
