- Autograph manuscript, signed, on paper, of a list of many of the Knights of the Round Table and summaries of their histories as given in Thomas Malory's Morte d'Arthur. Some entries are accompanied by pen and ink drawings of coats-of-arms. The work may have been modeled on Les devise des armes de chevaliers de la table ronde, published by Antoine Verard. Grimken's preface notes that he has not included "many faned and vaine taylles" and connects his interest in the Round Table with the archery fellowship founded by "Kynge Henry of fames memory," Prince Arthur's Knights. The preface concludes with "vivat Regina."
