Editorial Reviews

Review

"Arthur Schwarz and his coauthors have elected ... to channel Henry in his many shapes and sizes at one and the same time, his kingly strengths and Persian flaws, concomitantly exposing the good, the bad, and the indifferent with equal measure .... This is most definitely a book about books-as-objects and artifacts, giving rise to a broad historical eclecticism that is as entertaining to the lay reader in its sheer diversity as it is informative, thanks largely to Schwarz's succinct narrative and well-illustrated, sectional essays and catalogue entries."--Earle Havens, The Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America

About the Author

After forty years in the investment industry, ARTHUR L. SCHWARZ retired to devote himself to studying and lecturing on history and the book world. His book collection and scholarly interests focus on all things English, particularly topography, royalty (particularly the Tudor and Stuart periods), and the English Reformation.

A superbly well-written and well-researched history of Henry VIII, his wives and 16th century England, including the remarkable story of the separation of England from the Catholic Church. Arthur Bloom

I went to the Vivat Rex exhibit in NYC the other day. If you have a chance run don't walk as it ends on May 2nd. Then goes to DC. Truly an
amazing collection. To think that Henry VIII actually laid eyes on on of the above. At the time they well selling the book at $35. I decided I didn't need it. But now I am sorry that I didn't buy it as it will refresh
everything that I saw. I went online to order it and it was $45. hmmmmmm.
So that brought me here and I am glad that I did.......Now I can't wait
to get it in the mail. After I get the book I will be back to put another two cents online..........I am sure it is worth its weight in gold.
