Since 1992 seventeen county volumes have been published which describe and illustrate brasses from medieval times right up to the present day. Each volume is fully indexed, making it a valuable resource for family and local historians, and also contains a chronological listing of pre-1700 figure brasses with styles of engraving for the connoisseur. 5841 pages have been produced, including 4518 illustrations, about half of them of brasses either never before illustrated or illustrated inadequately.
