A few books from the past couple of months that were previously released in the UK will be out in November in the US:

Charles Brandon: Henry VIII’s Closest Friend by Steven Gunn will be out November 19 in the US:

… as will Terry Breverton’s The Tudor Kitchen: What the Tudors Ate & Drank

And a few releases from October that I missed…

The First Book of Fashion: The Book of Clothes of Matthaeus and Veit Konrad Schwarz of Augsburg edited by Ulinka Rublack and Maria Hayward was released on October 22 in the UK and US.

And the interest in Jasper Tudor continues (yay!) with another addition to the growing number of works on him: Jasper: The Tudor Kingmaker by Sarah Elin Roberts, which was released at the end of October in the UK and will be out in December in the US.

And Stuff & Nonsense: Kings & Queens by Ian Baillie is a comic verse take on the lives of English Kings and Queens which came out at the end of October in both the UK and US.

Now, finally, on to the new releases for November!
