William Cecil Ist Baron of Burghley 1520- 1598 An Original Signed Piece

Local Interest

St Mary’s Books have recently acquired this lovely little piece which is of great local interest and is also an important part of history!

William Cecil, 1st Baron of Burghley (1520-1598) was an English statesman, the chief advisor to Queen Elizabeth I for most of her reign, twice Secretary of State, and Lord High Treasurer. Historian Albert Pollard wrote: “From 1558 for forty years the biography of Cecil is almost indistinguishable from that of Elizabeth and from the history of England”.

A good example of the signature of Lord Burghley advisor to Queen Elizabeth the First. An Original signed piece loosely laid down on an old paper leaf approximately 5.2 cm by 7.8cm
