The signature of a teenage king in waiting: 550-year-old hand-written book is signed by Richard III and contains his personal motto

A book that was given to Richard III as a teenager has gone on public display for the first time since it was written 550 years ago. The signed book is one of only 13 of Richard III’s books that is known to still exist. It is especially valuable as he has signed it ‘R Gloucester’ as he was only the Duke of Gloucester as a young man.

The rare book was rediscovered in a library at Longleat House in Wiltshire. for more click here
