Seward, Desmond - The Last White Rose - ( Item 129346 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2016. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Very slight marks to slipcase. Bound in blocked buckram. 320 pages. Frontispiece and 12 pages of colour plates. 10" x 6¾". In his sequel to the best-selling The Wars of the Roses, Desmond Seward reveals the secret conflict that continued throughout the reigns of both Henry VII and Henry VIII. Contrary to popular belief, the Wars of the Roses did not end in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth. While the country reeled from the unexpected defeat of Richard III, Henry Tudor attempted to unify the two rival branches of the House of Plantagenet by marrying Elizabeth of York, intending to nullify the threat of the White Rose while silencing doubts regarding the Tudor claim. However, in this engrossing account, Desmond Seward reveals how the war against the White Rose continued in secret, seeding insecurity, fear and even paranoia behind the Tudor facade of stability, magnificence and power.
