This volume draws on the great collection of Cecil Papers at Hatfield House to present, in a sequence of some forty selected documents, a startlingly immediate narrative of the intrigue and drama that inform the last act of the Scots Queen’s tragedy.  The documents have been edited by Dr Alan G. R. Smith of Glasgow University, who has contributed a substantial and informative introduction to the volume. Further interest is added by the inclusion of ‘An Epitaph upon the death of … Marie’ (1604), reproduced from the unique copy at Hatfield and accompanied by an authoritative note by Dr David Rogers.
