4.0 out of 5 stars Readable but not a scholarly edition 12 May 2012
By Roman Clodia TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This contains the seventeen letters written by Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn between c.1527-1528, plus her letter to Wolsey with Henry's postscript. There are brief notes at the end and some short bibliographical information. While the text notes that nine of these letters were originally written in French, it doesn't indicate which ones.

The original letters are now in the Vatican Library (most likely stolen by either the Imperial or Venetian ambassador) and, since they were undated, there is much debate about the dates, and order in which they were written, so don't take what we're given in this edition as in any way fixed, accurate or stable.

So overall this is a perfectly workable edition of the letters, but if you're referring to them in any kind of academic context you will need to cross-reference them with a more scholarly source such as the Harleian Miscellany or the edition by Muriel St Clare Byrne - oh and, ideally, read the French letters in the original.

2.0 out of 5 stars Low quality 24 Feb 2010
By Amy Lou
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Like the other reviewer, I was expecting a lot more from this book, but it is flimsy and looks cheap. I had hoped for some colour pictures of Henry and Anne but there weren't, and the front cover pictures look like they've been swiped from a low resolution Google image. Too expensive for the quality it offers. It is more of a booklet than a book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very impressed 6 July 2009
By Steve
Format:Paperback
I bought this for my girlfriend for her birthday because she is very interested in this period of history. From the image it looks like a very smart, impressive book, but on arrival it turned out to be very thin and low quality.

The pages are thin and bright white with very large dark printed words, as if it was aimed for teachers to photocopy for children. Don't get me wrong, the letters and poetry within are all very interesting, but as a present it is not very impressive and looks like it should have been £2.99 max. My girlfriend was unimpressed and this has put me off ordering books like this online.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is mot definitely recommended to any history fanatics like me. Loved this book as its fascinating to find out the relationship between Henry and and because it has always intrigued me. However, it fails to put letters in order..... and more information would be given. But am in all, a fascinating read (:

4.0 out of 5 stars Most interesting 12 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As an avid fan of Tudor history these letters provide a great insight into the love of Henry and Anne. Being written so global it is at times hard to follow but that's half the fun of it....putting yourself into the mind set to fathom what is being said ..
