The Hamilton Papers
Letters and Papers illustrating the political relations of England and Scotland in the 16th century formerly in the possession of the Dukes of Hamilton now in the British Museum edited by Joseph Bain FSAScot in two volumes (1892)

With the slight exceptions formerly noticed, the originals of Sadleyr’s State Papers are now printed for the first time in their integrity.2 In addition, there are many letters of James V., his mother Queen Margaret, the Regent Arran, Archibald earl of Angus, his brother Sir George Douglas, the Earls of Cassillis, Glencairn, and others of note in Scotland. On the English side are the drafts of despatches from Henry or his Council, often bearing the King’s autograph corrections, with original letters from Norfolk, Suffolk, Hertford, Dudley (Viscount Lisle), Parr, Shrewsbury, and other leading statesmen.

The reader wifi find it advantageous in consulting these letters and papers, to refer also to the printed collection of State Papers, edited by Mr Lemon. The letters or despatches in one collection are often replies to those in the other, and together they explain a good deal hitherto left doubtful.

Vol. I. A.D. 1532—1543 | Vol. II. A.D. 1543—1590
