Inhaltsangabe: The treasurers' and chamberlains' accounts of Elizabethan Ipswich are a detailed record of the annual income and expenditure of the town's ruling body during one of the most fascinating periods of its history. A major source for any detailed study of the Suffolk borough at a time when it was among the country's ten richest provincial towns, the entries selected from the accounts not only shed light on sixteenth-century urban administration but also provide vivid insights into the social and economic life of the period: the equipping of soldiers, ducking of scolds, and performances of town minstrels and itinerant players.JOHN WEBB was formerly Principal Lecturer in History at Portsmouth Polytechnic.
Rezension: Ipswich was one of the leading provincial towns of Elizabethan England, so these detailed accounts suppy a valuable insight into the life and government of a manor urban community.. Full of significant detail for both those interested in the local history of the town and for a wider readership, primarily composed of those concerned with social matters. HISTORYDetailed and provoking views of the 'social edge' of Elizabethan Ipswich make this well-edited collection of fiscal documents a valuable asset for both social and economic historians alike.
