Henry III released in paperback

Tuesday, 9 February 2021

David Carpenter’s landmark English Monarchs biography Henry III has been released in paperback today. As has been observed on the Henry III page in this website, the book is significant for the series, medieval history, and for scholarship. Additionally, the new paperback is significant for Yale’s series as the cover indicates a bold departure from the past; the subtle line drawing of Henry’s tomb effigy is quite different to the two-tone colour image on the hardback. Previously the paperback version bore the same image as the hardback with some adaptations. With Henry III, Yale has gone with new cover design indicating a willingness to experiment with the series and to keep it fresh. The North American release date is 30 March. ISBN 9780300259193 and £14.99.
