Gallery of English Monarchs Series Covers


Book covers are supposed to tempt readers into buying the book and should be displayed face-out in a bookshop.

To mark fifty years of the publishing of the English Monarchs series this gallery is offered as a visual celebration of the books. The covers below are those of the original hardback issue (not necessarily Methuen or Yale) plus significant second editions of a couple of titles, and the “Companion Titles”. Click on a cover to go to the page for that book.

The slideshow reveals the covers in order added to the series from the first in 1964  to the most recent non-series book in 2019. These are the Yale books which we are observing as companion volumes.

Below are displayed the books in reign order.
