Trevelyon Miscellany

The Trevelyon Miscellany is a manuscript miscellany covering topics spanning various religious, historical, social, and practical themes adapted from various sources. It is named after Thomas Trevelyon, who compiled the work in London in 1608 and furnished it with various handwritten notes and drawings, many of them hand colored. These drawings were largely modelled on woodcuts and engravings and the manuscript is best known for its embroidery patterns, which comprise nearly 100 pages. The text is divided into five parts: historical and practical information; a Biblical chronology and genealogy, a list of British monarchs; Biblical and secular verses and parables; patterns for embroidery and woodwork; a list of the sheriffs and mayors of London.
