  • -  1 page. Large Folio (640 x 370 mm.). With Banninge's pendant wax seal. In a cloth case. From the collection of R. A. Meyrick, collateral descendant of Drake.
  • -  The document is in English, and is clearly written and legible. It comprises 39 lines (about 1700 words) and is in fine condition. Signatures of two witnesses, Thomas Fytch and W. Spencer, are also on the document. On the verso are two contemporary dockets, and also one of the 19th century.
  • -  "The Herbar" was once a royal residence, being occupied by King Richard III, and later (1571-1578) by the Spanish diplomatic mission in London. It had recently been rebuilt and modernized by the Lord Mayor, Sir Thomas Pullison, and must have been a valuable property, as it fronted on the Thames, and was next to the Steelyard, the headquarters of the Hanseatic League in London.
