I don’t think I missed any books last month, and I don’t have any US releases of previous UK publications, so it’s straight in to the new books this month!
A Queen of a New Invention: Portraits of Lady Jane Grey Dudley. England’s ‘Nine Days Queen’ by J. Stephan Edwards is due out in both the US and UK on February 12, the anniversary of Jane’s execution. Followers of the Q&A Blog might know the author better by the name “PhD Historian”, one of the regular commenters there. I’ve also featured links to the work that he has posted on his website Some Grey Matter over the years, which gives you a good idea of the amount of detailed scholarship that has gone into the book.
The book is available via Amazon (links below), but if you would like a signed copy you can also order one directly from the author.
And the other new book this month is The World of Richard III by Kristie Dean. Any readers here who are also on my TudorTalk YahooGroup might recognize this author’s name too! The book is a travel guide to the places associated with Richard III that you can still visit today and it will be out in mid-February in the UK and in April in the US.
* One month left! – The Real Tudors: Kings and Queens Rediscovered display at the National Portrait Gallery opened September 12, 2014 and will run through March 1, 2015. I’m so jealous of everyone who has had a chance to see this… I’ll just have to console myself with my copy of the accompanying book.
