Series Editor: David Starkey
The aim of the Inventory Project, established in 1991 by David Starkey and supported by the Society of Antiquaries of London, is to publish the text of the 1547 Inventory together with specialist essays on each of the principal categories of art and artefacts that it lists. The text of the Inventory consists of more than 18,000 numbered entries, which record over 50,000 items. The Inventory is not only a catalogue of magnificence but also a key text for evaluating the successes and failures of the Tudor monarchy under Henry VIII, telling us what once existed, and enabling us to identify surviving objects.
