Volume XVI Part 4, 2000-2001

This special double-issue of MBS Transactions is devoted to the memory of the late Walter Mendelsson FSA, for many years Secretary and latterly a Vice-President of the MBS. One of the initiatives he warmly supported was a one-day symposium at the British Museum on 21 June 1997. In this issue the papers given that day, together with others relating to brasses in the British Museum's collection.
