Launcelot Surry research on portraits of Edward VI

Scope and Content

Draft copy in two ringbinder files of "Portraits of Edward VI" by Launcelot Surry, edited by Nigel Surry M.A. (Oxon), 1966. This is thought to be a revised version of Surry's1925 work of the same name. Also contained are of images of Edward VI, some of which have been arranged in photograph albums. A microfilm is also contained in the box, it is unlabelled but appears to have been from the British Museum - it is assumed that the content is now in the British Library.

Administrative / Biographical History

Launcelot Surry (c. 1900-1966) researched portraits of Edward VI, publishing a catalogue of those he had discovered in 1925. It is thought he continued to research the topic throughout his life, in later years working on it with his son Nigel.
