On page 8 it shows a table showing - A Royal House Divided. This also shows Lancaster as the white rose emblem and York as the red rose emblem.
I have checked other editions of the book by the same author showing the correct information that Lancaster was the red rose emblem and that York was the white rose emblem.
I am very disappointed. How will I know what other information may be incorrect in this edition of the book?
For the purchase price of £1.79 this book is a steal. Like most people, I suppose, I had some knowledge of the Tudor Period and the more prominent characters that made it such a rich and fascinating era. Having read this book I now know a good deal more.
This is a history book that reads like a novel; it isn't dry and full of meticulous detail and is all the more enjoyable for it. Of course some level of detail is important, otherwise there would be no point buying it. For me there is the correct amount of detail within the framework of what it sets out to be: a concise record of perhaps the most defining period of British history.
It's not just an enjoyable and interesting read; it will, I am sure, also act as a good reference book if something of that period comes to your attention.
I have no reservation in recommending this book; Jane Bingham has provided me with a lot more knowledge than I had previously and kept me thoroughly entertained. Take my advice. Buy it.
