Detailed Description
This catalogue for the Grolier Club and Folger exhibition Vivat Rex! brings the real Henry VIII, his life, reign, and time, to life through books, manuscripts, handwritten letters, and prints.
The complicated personality and dramatic reign of England’s King Henry VIII—visionary, tyrant, monarch, bully, defender of the faith, destroyer of monasteries, lover and libertine—have been immortalized (and fictionalized) in literature, on stage, and in film by leading writers of their generations. Many of the works described and illustrated are unique in themselves, or belonged to Henry himself, to his family, or to members of his court.

The Grolier Club in collaboration with Folger Shakespeare Library, Houghton Library of the Harvard College Library, The Morgan Library and Museum. Arthur L. Schwarz; John Guy, Dale Hoak and Susan Wabuda, contributors.
Paper, 2009.  ISBN: 978-1-60583-017-9.  246 pp. 156 color illus. 8 1/2 x 11"
