Order of the Garter Statutes and blue velvet-covered presentation box surmounted by the arms of the Order, a cross of St. George surrounded by a garter with the motto 'Honi Soit Qui Mal y Pense'. These two items were presented to a new member of the Order nominated by George V although the regalia is no longer present. The book is: The Statutes of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, 1926, xiv, pp 170, deep blue textured cloth with the garter insignia to the upper cover, a fine copy printed by 'Harrison and Sons, Printer in Ordinary to His Majesty'. The book contains a history of the order, observations for St. George's day, a list of decrees by monarchs from King Phillip and Queen Mary to George V. The box measures 35x28x12cm, covered in blue velvet with a brass lock and hinges, light rubbing to extremities. There is no clue as to which member of the garter was awarded this particular box and volume on accession to the order which remains one of the greatest honors in the gift of the crown.
