£29.99

Product description

Edward II: His Last Months and His Monument

Jill Barlow, Richard Bryant, Carolyn Heighway, Chris Jeens & David Smith


The Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society and Past Historic, 2015.
Bristol and Gloucestershire Monographs Number Two.

Hardback; 180 x 255 mm; green boards with titles in gold on spine; xvi & 148 pages; illustrations within text; printed on good quality glossy paper. Original unclipped dust jacket.
The book is in fine condition.

"This volume focuses on previously unpublished sources for the last year of the life of Edward II and his monument in Gloucester Cathedral. The archives at Berkeley Castle have been rigorously searched and extracts are reproduced in facsimile with translations and commentaries. There is a meticulous description of the monument, supported by more than sixty illustrations including measured drawings, historical images and photographs. The so-called ‘Fieschi letter’, on which the legend of Edward’s survival is mainly based, is published in facsimile with a new translation and commentary; and finally a recently discovered letter purporting to describe the opening of the tomb in 1855 is published for the first time. There are new facts on almost every page. Everyone interested in this fascinating period needs this book.”
