the History of the haberdashers' Company


Dr Ian W. Archer has substantially rewritten his two previous contributions to the history of the Haberdashers’ Company, a general History written in 1991, and a supplementary account of the Company in the later 20th century written to coincide with the opening of the present Hall.  The revised version takes into account the considerable advances in scholarly research and understanding of the social,  economic and cultural history of the City of London, and draws upon previously unknown source material. A new edition also presents an opportunity for enriching the visual record of the Company’s history.

This book is essential reading for farmers, landowners and everyone interested in the past, present and future of English land.
