There are many beautiful plates and illustrations with our library. We are building a photostream on Flickr.

A fine example is this picture of Sir Thomas Egerton, the First Viscount Brackley.

Born in Cheshire in 1540. He was an english nobleman, Statesman and Judge, serving as Solicitor General, Attorney General, Master of the Rolls, Lord Keeper and Lord Chancellor. He also served as Queens Counsel to Queen Elizabeth I.
