Although it is generally accepted that More's Richard III initiates modern historical writing, there has been no scholarly edition of either the Latin of the English versions. The Yale St. Thomas More Project has now completed the formidable task of editing this work, and offers it complete, with parallel English (1557) and Latin (1565) texts, a full textual apparatus that lists all the major variant readings from Hardyng's and Halle's Chronicles, a collation of all extant manuscript versions, and, for the first time in full, the important early draft of the Latin text, manuscript Arundel 43 in the College of Arms. The Introduction discusses the development of the text and the circumstances under which it was composed, and there is a commentary which translates major passages preserved only in the Latin versions and examines the relationships between the texts. Richard Sylvester is assistant professor of English at Yale University and executive editor of the St. Thomas More Project. (Volume 1 in preparation.) Previously announced.
