61 editions published between 1878 and 2010 in English and held by 837 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 Paston letters, A.D. 1422-1509 by John Fenn( Book )

53 editions published between 1896 and 2010 in English and English, Middle and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Archivist and historian James Gairdner, C.B. (1828-1912) began his career in the Public Record Office at 18 and retired as assistant keeper forty-seven years later. The author of numerous historical works, Gairdner is best-known for his archival and editorial work, which forms his most significant contributions to historical scholarship. He oversaw almost entirely the publication of Letters and Papers, Foreign and Domestic, of the Reign of Henry VIII. The Paston Letters represent a similarly important work. The Letters reveal the fortunes of the Norfolk Paston family and of their tumultuous time. Beginning in the reign of Henry V and continuing through the reigns of Edward IV, Richard III, and Henry VII, the Letters are of great interest to early modern historians and literary critics. Volume 3 (1454-1461) contains letters from Henry VI's reign and the War of the Roses, closing with the accession of Edward IV

With his decisive victory at the Battle of Bosworth Field (1485), Henry VII ended the Wars of the Roses and famously delivered peace to a war-ravaged England. Ever since, his life and court have attracted the attention of commentators, historians and strategists. Described by the The Examiner as a 'store of welcome gossip', this 1858 collection of documents pertaining to the first Tudor monarch swiftly became popular, and could be found on the bookshelves of scholars and politicians alike. Compiled, translated and edited by the archivist and historian James Gairdner for the Rolls Series, the work contains a variety of ambassadors' reports on foreign rulers including the Kings of Aragon, Castile and Naples. Transcribed in their original Latin, with English translations and commentary provided by Gairdner, these accounts reveal the origins of international relationships that would influence the policy of Henry's descendants for centuries
The reign of Henry VIII from his accession to the death of Wolsey by J. S Brewer( Book )

23 editions published between 1884 and 1968 in English and held by 394 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
