The edition also includes other relevant writings by Bacon, generous editorial footnotes explaining the historical and political issues of the period, and a substantial glossary.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Vickers's edition--crisply introduced, fully annotated, meticulously glossed, and appending Bacon's fragmentary histories of other Tudor monarchs, together with five of the Essays--now becomes the standard one." The New Criterion

    "This new edition of Bacon's The History of the Reign of King Henry VII offers the student of history a good introduction to Jacobean English and Tudor history, economics, and politics." Seventeenth-Century News
