(LARGE PRINT EDITION) 1889. The English historian Gairdner's
valuable and painstaking contributions to English history relate
chiefly to the reigns of Richard III, Henry VII and Henry VIII. He
begins his biography of Henry the Seventh: Never was king so
thoroughly disciplined by adversity before he came to the throne as
was King Henry VII. Without a father even from his birth, driven
abroad in his childhood owing to the attainder of his family, more
than once nearly delivered up to his enemies and owing life and
liberty to his own and his friends' astuteness, his ultimate
conquest of the Crown was scarcely so much a triumph of ambition as
the achievement of personal safety. Contents: Early Life;
Attainment of the Crown; Settlement in the Kingdom; Rebellion of
Lambert Simnel; The War in Brittainy; The War with France; Perkin
Warbeck and His Friends; Ireland; Henry's Foreign Policy; Domestic
History; Prosperity and Alliances; and Henry VII and Castile. See
