The Holinshed Bibliography

As is probably inevitable at the beginning of a substantial project, its bibliography has at this stage a somewhat provisional quality. All suggestions for its expansion will therefore be gratefully received. And because it has at present an unmistakeably literary bias, information about books and articles relating to the historical content and purposes of Holinshed's Chronicles will be especially welcome. Details can be emailed to Paulina Kewes.
