What Our Customers Say...
Limited Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, Uncommon
A limited edition to three hundred and twenty five copies, this volume being number two hundred and three. Depicting the life and death of Thomas Wolsey, English Archbishop and Catholic clergyman, who became the King's almoner during the reign of Henry VIII. He soon became the main figure in virtually all matters of state. He lived a very full and interesting life, obtaining at one point the position of Lord Chancellor; he was often regarded as an alter rex, another king. His government titles were stripped off him with the annulment of Henry's marriage to Catherine of Aragon, and went back to his archbishop duties. He was charged with treason before his death in 1530.
