Published in four volumes between 1892 and 1899, this collection contains assorted papers and correspondence between Spain and Spanish dignitaries in England from the accession of Elizabeth I in 1558 through to her death in 1603. Revealing the changing relationship between Spain and England, the documents offer detailed insights into Elizabeth's reign from a continental and Catholic perspective. Derived in large part from the archives at Simancas, they have been carefully edited and translated into English by Martin Andrew Sharp Hume (1843-1910), a respected historian of Spain and a scrupulous archival researcher. Each volume is arranged chronologically, contains an introduction that provides helpful historical context and closes with an index that includes both letter writers and recipients. Volume 1 (1892) covers the first nine years of Elizabeth's reign and highlights the religious tensions that characterised this period.
