England Under the Tudors - King Henry VII 1485-1509

ENGLAND UNDER THE TUDORS KING HENRY VII 1485-1509. by DR. WILHELM BUSCH. TRANSLATED BY ALICE M. TODD. Originally published in U.S.A in 1895.           INTRODUCTION: ALTHOUGH English history has been his principal study, the name of Dr. Wilhelm Busch is not yet so well known in this country as in his own, where, after being eagerly sought for as a teacher by one university after another, he now fills a professorship of history at Freiburg, in Baden. Yet his writings on sixteenth-century diplomacy, and especially on the foreign policy of Cardinal Wolsey, have attracted the attention of scholars, not only in this country and in Germany, but in France and it is already evident that whoever here after intends to make himself thoroughly acquainted with the beginnings of our modern European system must devote a certain amount of study to Dr. Buschs writings. But, if we may judge of the future by the past, the students debt to him will certainly be much more considerable when he has finished the work of which the first volume, published in German three years ago at Stuttgart, is here presented to the English reader in his own language. As I have special reason for taking an interest in this first volume, and some notes of mine are actually appended to it, I may perhaps be allowed here to say a few words, not only for Dr. Busch, but for myself. It is very many years now since my attention was first devoted to the reign of Henry VII., and I collected in one of the earlier volumes of the Rolls Series of Chronicles certain Memorials of that reign, which I heartily wish had been edited with better knowledge and training on my part The contents of that volume, how ever, being original documents of the period, had a value independent of the editing and it was shortly afterwards followed up by two other volumes of papers relating to the same period In these three volumes I really exhausted all the more readable and significant of the then imprinted documents of the reign that were to be found in our English archives, either in the Record Office, the British Museum, or, so far as I knew, in other repositories at home. The extreme scantiness of this sort of material was the more to be regretted as the period was one in which there were no more monastic chronicles, and for anything like a full account of its history from a contemporary pen we were indebted only to the Italian, Polydore Vergil, who is the main source of the information given by Bacon, Hume, Lingard, and all our English historians in treating of Henry VII. s time. Since that day, however, the archives of Simancas and of Venice and Northern Italy have been explored by students employed by the British Government, and a flood of light has been thrown on many matters that were before obscure. Much occupied with other things, it was always a source of regret to me that I have never been able to follow up the advantages thus gained by a fuller and more systematic study both of the new evidences and of the old and even when Mr. John Morley did me the honour to ask me to contribute a volume on Henry VII. to his series of Twelve English Statesmen 1 although I felt unable to decline, I could not help feeling a slight misgiving about putting forth another imperfect study on a subject on which I had already written with inadequate information without being able even yet to do it serious justice. No one, however, had as yet popularized the new material, and it seemed right that the results of so much investigation should be combined and made more generally known. So I trust that my volume supplied a real want,...
