In this book Doctor Penzer relates all that is known about Storr's antecedents and working life, and in doing so he adds considerably to the rather exiguous information which had previously been available. Among the illustrations will be found pieces commissioned by royal and noble patrons, examples of Storr's work in church plate, and a number of those more modest pieces which appeal particularly to the collector of today."
