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 or, where not originally a Methuen or Yale title, the hardback cover when introduced to the series. Also present are the “Companion Titles”.

Click on a cover to go to the page for that book.

For a description of the evolution of the series book cover styles see the Covers page.

The slideshow reveals the covers in order added to the series from the first in 1964  to the most recent non-series book in 2021. These are the Yale books which we are observing as companion volumes.

Below are displayed the books in reign order.
