Several thousand examples of personal 'friendship albums' (alba amicorum) survive from early modern Europe, which preserve signatures, mottoes and messages left by major figures of the day, sometimes with opulent watercolour illustrations. Focusing on albums with strong English connections, Schlueter has produced the first full-length study of this fascinating source of information on networks of European relationships, the tourist attractions of Shakespeare's London and events such as the Lord Mayor's procession and theatrical performances.
