Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The King's Servants is a case history to the Tudor Tailor that discusses the clothing of the servants of the Court of Henry VIII near the beginning of his reign, specifically between 1498 and 1511. The source of the information is the warrants issued to the Great Wardrobe for directing purchases of cloth or cloth and the services of a tailor to make up the clothes for the middle-ranking men who were clerks, attendants and huntsmen.

The book is short - only 48 pages; hence the 4 stars. The first 33 pages are a lively discussion of the various warrants and who received the cloth. The final pages are a brief section on the construction of some of the clothing discussed in the first part. Here, having a copy of the Tudor Tailor is vsluable since the instructions are quite skimpy.

As an additional note, my copy came with a flyer for The Queen's Servants: Gentlewomen's dress at the accession of Henry VIII. I look forward to purchasing it from Amazon.
