Editorial Reviews


'... for anyone drawn to these matters, this text remains a real contribution to the field, an essential work to read, ponder, and consult repeatedly as needed.' Seventeenth-Century News 'This informative collection concludes with a useful appendix containing a brief account of all the diplomats from the emperor, Flanders, and Spain accredited to the court of King James, and a select bibliography.' Renaissance Quarterly 'Readers coming to this book from varied historical viewpoints will all enjoy a feast, and they will certainly be astonished by its wealth of documentation... This stimulating book, adorned moreover with twenty plates and a valuable bibliography, is a fine advertisement for interdisciplinary scholarship; it should urge us on.' Literature and History 'This collection addresses an important yet often neglected historical event in a remarkably interdisciplinary way.' Journal of British Studies 'It represents one of the most important contributions to the events of 1623 since Gardiner's enormous Prince Charles and the Spanish Marriage (London: Hurst & Blackett, 1869). ... If Charles' marrying Maria might have altered the course of history in ways we can only imagine, not quite marrying her produced considerable changes in Britain, and in the court in particular, which this book goes a long way to revealing. The illustrations, twenty of them, are excellent.' Bulletin of Spanish Studies
