Text and Studies Series - Note from Stephen Taylor
It is nearly ten years since the Parliamentary History Yearbook Trust first published J. C. Sainty’s highly useful, Peerage Creations, 1649–1800: A Chronological List of Creations in the Peerages of England and Great Britain. This year, to mark the launch of the Trust’s new series, Parliamentary History: Texts & Studies, we have returned to Sainty. This comprehensive volume bundles a revised and updated edition of Sainty’s 1998 publication with his new research on Irish peerage creations. By extending our knowledge of peerage creations between 1649 and 1800, we believe that this volume will become the essential reference text for anyone working on the peerage.

The Parliamentary History: Texts & Studies series draws upon the interests and research of recent and established scholars to explore the parliamentary histories of England, Scotland and Ireland, broadly defined, and the changing nature of British political culture. The Parliamentary History Record Series will be replaced by the new series, which will publish significant monographs on political/parliamentary subjects, as well as carefully edited and fully noted volumes of primary-source documents.

The new series seeks to make parliamentary history more accessible to a wider, international audience. We are pleased to announce that, as part of our agreement with Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, subscribers to Parliamentary History will receive a volume of Parliamentary History: Texts and Studies each year as part of their subscription. The volumes will also be available to subscribers electronically. In 2008, to celebrate the move to Wiley-Blackwell, subscribers will receive two volumes of Parliamentary History. Texts & Studies: Sainty (volume 1) is being distributed free, to thank subscribers for their continued support of the journal, whereas Hannes Kleineke’s Parliamentarians at Law: Select Legal Proceedings of the Long Fifteenth Century Relating to Parliament (volume 2) will be circulated to subscribers in 2008 as part of their subscription.

Enquiries about the series, and about the opportunities it provides for electronic publication, are welcome. 

Please contact the Series Editor at Graduate School in Arts and Humanities, Old Whiteknights House, University of Reading, Whiteknights, Reading, RG6 6AH.
