From the cover: “The volume entitled The Commonplace Book of Sir Edward Bayntun of Bromham is not a commonplace book in the accepted sense; few of the entries are extracts from works of literature or scholarship. It was, however, compiled chiefly, if not solely, by Sir Edward Bayntun (1618-79), the majority of entries concern his estates, his family, and his part in local and national politics.”
