to Stephen de Segrave, co-regent for King Henry III of England,
during the summer of 1230.
|This is a scan of a color xerox of the original document. Though it is thus only a copy of a copy, it nevertheless gives a pretty good impression of the state of the original document which is very small (about 12x16 cm), darkened, stained, and virtually illegible. Viewing the document under ultraviolet light improves matters somewhat as you can see from the image below:|
|This is a small version of one of the images you will find in the following pages. The images are high resolution scans of black and white photographs taken under both ultraviolet and full spectrum light. Many thanks to Brian Carter of the Public Record Office, who very kindly permitted me to observe over the course of two days as he tried to get the best images possible.|
