The chief merit of the work is that it tells the plain, unvarnished story Of Henry's Divorce from Katherine, disentangled from the various other events and courses of action, foreign and domestic, of the period, by which the marriage question is generally obscured. It relies entirely upon the original documents as published in the various calendars of State Papers and other contemporary authorities, and the reader may see at once upon what ground any given statement is made. It is true that, taken as a whole, this tale of intrigues and negotiations and delays reads more like the recital Of a feverish dream than sober history. The crisis, always imminent, seems never to advance, and to those unacquainted with Tudor methods, the story may well appear incredible. In reality, how ever, it states fairly, and without embellishment, the devious paths by which Henry VIII. Attained his end at last, and divorced his first wife Katherine in order to marry Anne Boleyn.
