Monumental brasses became popular during the Middle Ages and were commonly mounted on the walls and floors of cathedrals to commemorate the great and wealthy. Often depicting knights and bishops, these representations are a major source of information concerning arms, armour and dress in the Middle Ages. Written by a member of the Monumental Brass Society, this book provides a history of the manufacturing of brasses from the Middle Ages through the Victorian revival and up to the present. It includes a list of many surviving brasses and where they can be found. It also provides instruction on the care and maintenance of brasses, with notes on the proper techniques for brass rubbing.
