A very informative book of the Royal Palaces of England with a detailed history of each Palace.The Publisher has copy-edited this book to improve the formatting, style and accuracy of the text to make it readable.

This did not involve changing the substance of the text. Some books, due to age and other factors may contain imperfections. Since there are many books such as this one that are important and beneficial to literary interests, we have made it digitally available and have brought it back into print for the preservation of printed works of the past.Editors NoteTHIS book derives its inspiration from work done for the Victoria County History, to the editor of which, Mr. Wilham Page, it owes much. The historical students who, for the last few years, have been making original investigations for the CountyHistory, have, from time to time, found many intimate records of the life of the past for which the plan of this History allowed no place.

A series of volumes, of which I undertook the general editorship, was, therefore, projected, in order to enable this interesting, and often picturesque, material to be used to good purpose. The series includes one volume on the Episcopal Palaces of the Province of Canterbury, one on the Episcopal Palaces of the Province of York, and one on the Royal Palaces of England, with an extra volume on the Royal Palaces of Scotland, suggested by, but unconnected with the work done for the Victoria History.

The present volume attempts to give some account of the life lived by sovereigns of England within their great houses, and to show with what periods and events of national history these are associated. For the selection of the palaces the general editor is responsible - the opinions expressed are those of the contributors themselves.ROBERT S.
