Individual and compelling study of the famous Paston letters, by a highly original scholar.
The Paston family are famous for the large collection of letters and papers that bear their name. This, the second volume in Colin Richmond's individual and compelling study of the Pastons, describes the bitter disputes over Sir John Fastolf's will, which hold a wider significance for the law, English society, and the complex politics of the fifteenth century. Professor Richmond's mastery of the Paston documents illuminates many obscurities surrounding the will, while creating an insightful and sympathetic picture of this fascinating family.
