34 Melton, Robert Melton, Kerrison & Smith owned by Lady Caroline Kerrison, edited by Lucy Toulmin Smith A Common-Place book of the fifteenth century, containing a religious play and poetry, legal forms and local accounts. Printed from the original ms. at Brome Hall, Suffolk, Lady Caroline Kerrison. Edited with notes by Lucy Toulmin Smith.
Privately printed 1886 1st Hard Book Good Vellum 15 x 23cm Approx. Signed/dedicated by Lady Caroline Kerrison
"The Boke of Brome" page + 2 illustrated pages + half title page + title page + ii + 176 pages. Cream binding (faux vellum ) with red line around edge in fair/good condition, some dirt, stain, corner knock. Contents; good, rough cut pages, some very mild foxing, still with tissue paper between the 2 illustrated pages. Only inscription noticed, is to The Boke of Brome page "For Lucy Page Roberts from her aff------- ( affectionate?) friend. Caroline Kerrtson" . . Title page states "Printed from the original manuscript at Brome Hall, Suffolk, by Lady Caroline Kerrison. Edited with notes by Lucy Toulmin Smith" so most institutions list this as the author was Lady Caroline Kerrison or by Lucy Toulmin Smith, both incorrect. From notes it is clear, the main a/cs part were written by Robert Melton of Stuston, who seems to have used a half written book of poems for his a/cs and many refer to Stuston &some to Scole , it is possible Robert Melton was working for the Cornwallis family who owned Stuston in the fifteenth century, & Brome Hall. It was much later the Kerrison family purchased Brome Hall, from the Cornwallis family. Lady Caroline Kerrison owned the original manuscript (her husband having died c1886) at the time of publication and asked Lucy Toulmin Smith to help to get it ready to publish it in full. As privately printed, possibly less than 100 were printed, and from a quick net check very few remain today and only found in institutions, none for sale. This being signed and dedicated from Lady Caroline Kerrison who though not the real author was the person who owned the original manuscript and was responsible for this tome being publishe
