The Earlier Tudors, 1485-1558

By J. D. Mackie | Go to book overview
Save to active project


M Y thanks are due to Miss Anne Robertson, Curator of the Hunter Coin Cabinet in the University of Glasgow, for the Appendix on Tudor Coinage; to Sir Ernest Bullock for help with the section on Music; and to J. C. Thomson, Esq., late of Charterhouse School, for advice and assistance in the section on Architecture.

I acknowledge, too, with great gratitude the generosity of the Council of the Royal Historical Society in permitting me to make use of the valuable Lists of Officers contained in the Handbook of British Chronology, and of the Saint Catherine Press for giving me leave to use the Lists of Officers, especially of Lords Admiral and Earls Marshal, published in the Complete Peerage (volume ii).

My indebtedness to the many scholars who have worked upon this period, which will be obvious to every reader, have been expressed in the footnotes and the Bibliography.

To the Provost of Oriel College I am grateful for a most helpful and considerate editorship, and to the staff of the Clarendon Press for their labours in seeing the work through the press.

Finally, I must express my thanks to a succession of Research Assistants, Miss Lyndall Miles ( Mrs. John Luce), Miss Jill Walker ( Mrs. Edwin Drummond), Miss Margaret Burnet ( Mrs. William Brown), Miss Moira Bruce ( Mrs. James McIntosh), and Miss Anna Dunsmore, for care and patience which have survived many changes of arrangement.

Arrangement, in a period when so many conflicting factors entered, and when each reign must needs be treated as a unity, has been a great difficulty. In the main I have adhered to chronology, but it has been necessary sometimes to present the various aspects of a single chapter in separate subsections, dealing respectively with foreign affairs, domestic political affairs, constitutional development, religion, economic and social questions.
