4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 25th March 2015, when King Richard III - recently rescued from a municipal car park - was reburied in Leicester Cathedral, his beloved football team had just lost 4-3 to Tottenham Hotspur. Bottom of the Premier League and teetering on the edge of relegation, the future of Leicester City FC looked bleak. But, with King Richard finally at rest, things were about to change... Here, in his own words, Richard himself tells the remarkable story of how these 5,000-1 Premier League outsiders became champions - the goals, games, and dressing-room banter which led to a triumph of Shakespearean proportions for this team of heroes
The History of King Richard III by Thomas More( Book )

3 editions published in 1924 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edward IV has recently died, leaving his offspring and potential future monarchs: twelve-year-old Edward, Prince of Wales, and Richard, Duke of York, aged nine. However, disturbing the natural succession is their uncle Richard, Duke of Gloucester, who will stop at nothing to become king." "Preying on the fears of his fellow-noblemen, Richard of Gloucester conspires with them to have the Princes abducted and imprisoned in the Tower. He then usurps the Princes' birthright, alleging that Edward, Prince of Wales, is a bastard and not a legitimate heir to the throne. In their place, Richard persuades London to accept him as king, and, according to More's account, has the Princes smothered to death to secure his position as monarch. However, it cannot be long before the conspiracy will begin to fall apart." "Much of what modern scholarship knows of Richard III stems from this biography - which itself proved the inspiration for Shakespeare's play - as does his notoriety as one of the most evil men in history. Freshly edited and presented alongside a glossary of archaic terms, this example of Early Renaissance English literature is now made available to a new generation of readers."--Jacket

Letters and papers illustrative of the reigns of Richard III and Henry VII by James Gairdner( Book )

2 editions published between 1863 and 1965 in French and English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection, published 1861-3 in the Rolls Series, contains documents from the period 1483 to 1509, when the House of York was replaced by the Tudor dynasty. It was one of many selections of source material on the period 1450-1550 compiled by James Gairdner (1828-1912), a long-serving archivist at the Public Record Office, whose work laid the foundations for much subsequent scholarship in British history. Volume 1 includes a contemporary description of the funeral of Edward IV, almost thirty letters from a previously unpublished manuscript assembled by the Chancellor of England during the short reign of Richard III, and sixty-nine items from the reign of Henry VII, together with an editorial introduction and a chronological summary of its contents. The correspondents, from across Europe, write in many different languages, on topics ranging from international peace talks and commercial treaties to the arrangements for Catherine of Aragon's arrival in England

Historic doubts on the life and reign of King Richard the Third by Horace Walpole( Book )

1 edition published in 1768 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historic justice is due to all characters. Who would not vindicate Henry the Eighth or Charles the Second, if found to be falsely traduced? Why then not Richard the Third? Of what importance is it to any man living whether or not he was as bad as he is represented? No one noble family is sprung from him
King Richard III by William Shakespeare( Book )

3 editions published between 1966 and 1976 in English and Hungarian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"King Richard III is one of Shakespeare's most popular and frequently-performed plays. Janis Lull's introduction to this new edition, which is based on the First Folio, emphasizes the play's tragic themes - individual identity, determinism and choice - and stresses the importance of women's roles. A thorough performance history of stage and film versions shows how the text has been cut, rewritten and reshaped by directors and actors to enhance the role of Richard at the expense of other parts, especially those of the women."--Jacket

2 editions published in 1789 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1 edition published in 1983 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard III (2 October 1452 ? 22 August 1485) was King of England for two years, from 1483 until his death in 1485 in the Battle of Bosworth Field. He was the last king of the House of York and the last of the Plantagenet dynasty. His defeat at Bosworth Field, the decisive battle of the Wars of the Roses, is sometimes regarded as the end of the Middle Ages in England. He is the subject of the play Richard III by William Shakespeare."--Wikipedia
