The Bedford Inventories: The Worldly Goods of John, Duke of Bedford, Regent of France, 1389-1435
John, Duke of Bedford, the brother of Henry V, was regent of France for his nephew, Henry VI, from 1422 to 1435. Three inventories of Bedford's worldly goods, compiled after his death for his executors, have survived in the Public Record Office, and are here published for the first time. Jenny Stratford's introduction and notes explore Bedford's court, his collections, and his artistic patronage in London, Paris and Rouen; she also discusses the questions of provenance (the French royal collections and spoils of war), and investigates a wealth of administrative, financial and legal issues raised by the inventories. The book concludes with biographies of 40 of Bedford's officers and creditors in England and France.
