Thomas Henry Noel-Hill

Some time ago I was privileged to be able to view a manuscript/book housed in the Shrewsbury museum (I call it the Cole Manuscript) and here is but one of the many photographs I took. Cole & Sons were heraldic painters/stationers based in Shrewsbury during the 19th and early 20th centuries and this is the bookplate of  Richard Henry Noel-Hill, 7th Baron Berwick, being used by his nephew, Thomas Henry Noel-Hill, who succeeded to the title as the 8th Baron in  1897, as a template to convey instructions for a newly commissioned bookplate.
