Erasmus said of his friend Thomas More that he was "the most delightful character in the world...indeed I do not think it is easier to make a likeness of More than of Alexander the Great or of Achilles; neither were those heroes more worthy of immortality." William Roper was More's son-in-law and his life of Sir Thomas More, with its intimate glimpses of life within the More household, has become a classic biography

The life and death of Cardinal Wolsey by George Cavendish( Book )

13 editions published between 1825 and 1827 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This copy is of particular interest on account of the family financial records (17th century) of the Harbords who originally owned the manuscript and which are to be found in the front and back of the volume. These records give values of commodities, rents, land holdings, wages of servants, labourers, etc. Also because the Harbords lived near Stratford-on-Avon and because one of the receipts is to a William Shakespeare, it is remotely possible that this was the copy Shakespeare used when writing Henry VIII. There is also a receipt to a John Milton
