I am English born and bred and educated (Lambrook, Rugby), but have lived in French-speaking Switzerland since 1971.



I am interested in many subjects, from antique arms and armour, philology and motor bikes to genealogy [1] [2] and cooking (historical and modern), but the following are among the more important in my life:

• German renaissance prints (particularly by the brothers Beham and the Hopfer family);

Renaissance music, particularly early keyboard music, and more particularly the English 'Virginalists': Byrd, Bull, Farnaby, Gibbons, Tomkins, Philips etc.

• Early drinking glasses.

• Early diaries and travel journals.
