A fascinating collection bringing together a selection of law suits brought by peers and members of the House of Commons in the royal common law and equity courts at Westminster between 1377 and 1512. Includes documents relating to aspects of constitutional history, such as disputes over parliamentary elections, the payment of the wages of members of the commons, and the evolution of the parliamentary privilege of freedom from arrest Illustrates a variety of aspects of the life of the medieval parliament and the members of both houses Contains texts never before published which have been gathered and collected from unwieldy and often poorly accessible sources among the English public records Accessible to a readership beyond the specialist in medieval legal history - includes full modern English translations of Latin, French and Middle English texts which have been printed as parallel texts alongside transcripts of the originals

Edward IV by Hannes Kleineke Edward IV, Hardback (July 2008)

Was Edward IV a vain and self-indulgent playboy, more interested in his own pleasures than the well-being of his kingdom, or was his life cut tragically short, thus preventing him from fully establishing the 'new monarchy' more commonly associated with his son-in-law, Henry VII? This biography reassesses this debate.
