Most widely held works by James Gairdner
Henry the Seventh by James Gairdner( Book )

54 editions published between 1889 and 2012 in English and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biography of Henry VII (1457-1509), who served as King of England between 1485 and 1509. He was of the House of Lancaster and after he attained the throne, married Elizabeth of the House of York (partially in order to pacify the Yorkists)
Lollardy and the Reformation in England; an historical survey by James Gairdner( Book )

93 editions published between 1908 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Gairdner (1828-1912) was one of the foremost authorities of his day on the Tudor period. This magisterial four-volume survey (originally published 1908-1913) argues that the impetus for the English Reformation came from the Lollard movement of the late fourteenth century. A prolific researcher and editor, Gairdner devoted his career to English history, and his study is both meticulous and factually sound. His critics, however, were quick to observe that the Lollard hypothesis was tenuous, and this mature work is most valuable today to those interested in the history of Reformation scholarship. Published in 1913, Volume 4 focuses on the first year of the reign of Mary Tudor and her marriage to Philip of Spain. Left unfinished on the death of the author, the book was completed by the Reverend William Hunt and includes a preface outlining Gairdner's life and career

History of the life and reign of Richard the Third, to which is added The story of Perkin Warbeck, from original documents by James Gairdner( Book )

57 editions published between 1878 and 2016 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No English king has been the subject of more heated debate than Richard III. In this 1898 revised edition of his classic biography, Gairdner attempts to produce a more balanced analysis of the sources than most earlier writers. While largely accepting the anti-Yorkist position shown by Thomas More and Shakespeare, he does reject some of the crimes attributed to Richard, such as the murder of his brother George, Duke of Clarence. He states at the outset that Richard was not a monster but the product of his times, when violence and ruthlessness were common political weapons. He also offers a more rounded picture of the king, showing good points as well as bad, rather than a caricature of evil. The most significant addition to this edition is the substantial appendix on the imposture of Perkin Warbeck, making use of continental sources hitherto unknown to English historians

The reign of Henry VIII from his accession to the death of Wolsey by J. S Brewer( Book )

17 editions published between 1884 and 1968 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A history of the reign of Henry VIII as it relates to Cardinal Wolsey and their joint political endeavors. At the beginning of Henry's reign, Wolsey was one of his most trusted advisors. It's even thought that Wolsey, at one time, had a greater hand in the politics of England than the King did. In the end, Wolsey's connection with the Papacy and Rome and his failure to procure Henry his divorce from Katherine, combined with many supposed plots to undermine the King, resulted in Wolsey being arrested and stripped of all titles
