Hello and Welcome to the Forum,

You should find the following books helpful, I think. They should be available in a good public library and if not they will be available through the Inter Library Loan Service.

The Reign of Mary I (Seminar Studies in History Series.)
by Robert Tittler
Publisher: Longman
ISBN: 0582061075

Mary Tudor: A Life
David Loades
Publisher: Blackwell Publishers
ISBN: 063118449X

Bloody Mary: The Life of Mary Tudor
by Carolly Erickson
Publisher: Robson Books Ltd

ISBN: 1861054726

I don't know the last mentioned book but can recommend the Tittler and the Loades.

All will have bibliographies to follow up.

There are also other books that could be recommended eg on the Tudors/C16th more generally with good Chapters on Mary and there are a number of more specialist books (eg on Tudor Rebellions or the so-called Mid-Tudor Crisis or the English Reformation) that have much on Mary too. What to recommend rather depends on the focus of your study.

Hope that helps

Thankyou very much!

Pleased to help ...... and don't forget to use the bibliographies in the books mentioned as a source of information about other books you might try to get hold of.

I'm studying Mary I as part of my A2 course and one of the books we use for our course may be of use to you. It does cover the whole of the Tudor Dynasty but it has a good section about Mary I:

The Tudor Years
Edited by John Lotherington
Publisher: Hodder and Stoughton
ISBN: 0340537949
