Henry V's victory at the Battle of Agincourt had been largely funded by the City of London and in gratitude he presented the Lord Mayor with the Crystal Sceptre, which has remained part of the treasures of the office ever since. This book examines the city's regalia and gold and silver collection, much of it photographed here for the first time, including important items of the finest craftsmanship from the 15th century to the present day.
