Scope and content
Letters to John Gough Nichols, FSA (1806-73) and notes compiled or collected by him relating mostly to the brasses in Cobham church, Kent; c. 1832-42. Nichols intended to publish a series of engravings of the brasses entitled Sepulchral Memorials of the Family of Cobham (1841); see the reference (p. 341 n.) in Nichols' edition of extracts by Robert Glover from Cobham muniments, 'Memorials of the Family of Cobham', Coll. Top. et Gen., 7 (June 1841), 320-54. This project was abandoned (correspondence in COB/001 includes criticism of the engravings) but the plates were subsequently published by F. C. Brooke as Sepulchral Memorials of the Cobham Family (1836-74).
Creator
