Princesses Mary and Elizabeth Tudor and the Gift Book Exchange

Published with ARC Humanities Press in 2021 in the Gender and Power in the Premodern World series.

This is the first book to offer a comparison of these two famous Tudor queens as princesses, suggesting that their early lives need to be more closely examined together. It offers a detailed case study of the four extant dedications that Elizabeth Tudor wrote to accompany manuscript translations that she gave to Henry VIII, his then wife, Katherine Parr, and to Elizabeth’s brother Edward (VI of England) as New Year’s gifts from 1545 to 1548.
