Schutte: Princesses Mary and Elizabeth Tudor and the Gift Book Exchange

The book is a thorough examination of the part that translations, dedications, and gift-giving, played in negotiations for status between the daughters of Henry VIII, before and after they each acceded to the throne. 

Read my review (access via Brill) of this excellent book by Dr Valerie Schutte, in Journal of Early Modern History, 26(1-2), 147-150.
