Overview

'Richard . . . was . . . little of stature, ill-featured of limbs, crook-backed, his left shoulder much higher then his right, hard-favoured of visage . . . malicious, wrathful, envious . . .'

The History of King Richard III by Thomas More, the celebrated 'man for all seasons', gives us King Richard red in tooth and claw; every inch the merciless tyrant the Tudors wanted us to believe he was.

The new Nook edition of this neglected classic includes modern spelling and punctuation, and an introduction showing how the recent discovery of the king's skeleton sheds light on More's spectacular hatchet-job.

'. . . an utterly exhilarating work, and the most accomplished piece of English prose of the earlier sixteenth century' (George M. Logan writing in The Cambridge Companion to Thomas More)

Published to mark the reburial of King Richard in March 2015
