"This book is the result of several decades of research...into the process by which the baronial Manners family, originally of Northumberland, came to take its place as one of the senior comital dynasties in England, that of the earldom of Rutland, during the age of the Tudors. ...The central theme of this book is the way that the Manners family, in the persons of the first two earls, survived and prospered over several decades and under four different Tudor monarchs." -David Crook (from the Forward) [This is a hardcover book (includes 10 color images).]
