Originally published in 1950, this book is the only in-depth examination of the life and career of Sir William Shareshull, a dynamic and sometimes shadowy force in the government of Edward III. Putnam uses many contemporary documents to uncover Shareshull's roots and to analyze whether or not his reputation for sinister and underhanded dealings is deserved. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in medieval English legal history.
