3688. Edward the First, by T. F. Tout (read 28 Jan 2003) This is a 1893 book (the copy I read was published in 1913). I sort of have a project to read a biography of every English sovereign and this was of one I had not read. It is written in the grand style of Macaulay, and I enjoyed every page. Though there are no footnotes nor bibliography the text breathes easy authority with the great events of the time (1239-1307). Good reading indeed.

This is a neat little 24-page book about the burglary of King Edward I's treasure room in 1303. There remains some mystery what exactly happened, it has lots of drama, interesting characters, scandal, cover-up, and a great sense and feel of the time. Very entertaining, includes a hand-drawn map and two relevant manuscript pages.

There also appears to be a 2005 book about it by Paul Doherty called "The Great Crown Jewels Robbery of 1303".… (mais)
