This book, published in two volumes, contains transcripts offour documents associated with the career of Sir Anthony Denny,Keeper of the Palace of Whitehall. The first, the 1542 Inventoryitself (PRO E315/160) contains over 4,100 entries, manycontaining a wealth of detail bringing to life the lavishsurroundings of Whitehall. Particular detail is given in relationto fabrics and furnishings. The other transcriptions are of thedeclarations of Sir Anthony Denny of 1547 and 1548 (PROE101/472/2 & BL Lansdowne Roll 14) and the declaration of hiswidow, Dame Joan Denny of 1551 (BL Lansdowne Roll 15). Inaddition to these, the volume contains a lengthy consideration ofDenny's career and life, and sets the compilation of the 1542inventory against the background of Tudor court life. The book isdesigned to accompany the post mortem 1547 Inventory of KingHenry VIII (Harvey Miller Publishers, 1998) edited by Dr DavidStarkey. To enable easy comparison of the 1542 and 1547inventories, a concordance is given enabling the reader of the1547 Inventory to access the greater detail of the 1542. Alsoincluded are brief biographies of over 100 individuals mentionedin the transcripts, a bibliography and full Indexes.

There is no question that Haywards volumes will long serve as a principal source for those working in the area of Tudor textiles, fashion, furnishings, and court culture.'--Dakota L. Hamilton"Sixteenth Century Journal" (01/01/2009)
