Product Description

Review

As is often now the case, the catalogue is as vivid as the show, but it is well worth the trip to get as close as will probably ever be possible to the greatest King that ever ruled England. --The Independent

Henry VIII: Man and Monarch provides an outstanding record of an excellent exhibition. A good read, provides fascinating insights into the mind of a great monarch. --Visual Art Books

Format: Paperback
I consider this book is brilliant.
I have many books on the Tudors but this one provided me with
much more information, pictures and descriptions of people and documents that I have not seen before. I am not a professional historian but I have a keen interest in the subject (Tudor and Stuart history and events).
I would strongly recommend this book to anybody irrespective of a particular interest in the Tudors.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By J. Hutchings on 9 July 2009
Format: Paperback
I was lucky enough to catch the Henry VIII exhibition at the British Library. What a kaleidoscope - not only rich in artefacts and items, but one had the great pleasure of hearing Dr David Starkey deliver the audio track. An experience not easily forgotten.

This publication is beautiful. Not only does it list, as far as I can see, every item at the exhibition, but does so with plenty of space - it is not reduced to a mere list with pokey pictures. I could go on about how 'each item is lovingly reproduced', but really, this is a book to be seen rather than a review to be read, and it is a very reasonable price.

As for the content, the exhibition and thus the content focus hugely on Henry's early life. You are over halfway through before you hit any real scandal. Starkey and Co have managed to get their hands on some outstanding items, include Henry's prayer roll.

If you can't get to the exhibit, this book will not disappoint.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Anyone interested in history in particular the reign of Henry Viii will find this book informative and fascinating. The book supports the exhibition currently being held at the British Library. It shows picttures of the exhibits at this exhibition which date to the time of Henry. Many of the items have never been displayed to the public in this wAy before and the book provides a lasting reference to these many historical items which help to bring this period of history alive.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a faithful, comprehensive, and exhilarating accompaniment to a wonderful exhibition. All items are recorded in the book and represent a treasure trove of Henry VIII and the Tudor world. Some exhibits, are difficult to access, so to have them all together is a great opportunity.
With David Starkey and Susan Doran overseeing it all you are guaranteed quality in terms of narrative authority and editorship.
For those interested in the world of the Tudors this is a must have!
Highly recommended.
