John Nichols's The Progresses of Queen Elizabeth (1788-1823) has long been an indispensable reference tool for scholars working on Elizabethan court and culture - despite the serious limitations of an antiquarian edition now two centuries old. This old-spelling edition of the early modern materials contained in Nichols's Progresses is edited to high and consistent standards, and based on a critical re-examination of printed and manuscript sources. It is structured by a narrative of the two sets of annual progresses undertaken by Queen Elizabeth I: the 'summer progresses,' when Elizabeth travelled throughout southern England and the Midlands, visiting cities as far afield as Bristol, Coventry, Norwich, and Southampton; and the 'winter progresses,' when Elizabeth moved between her residences in and around London, including Richmond, Hampton Court, and Whitehall. New editions of the major progress entertainments - Kenilworth, Woodstock, Elvetham, Cowdray, Ditchley, and Harefield - are set alongside accounts of civic receptions, tilts and Accession Day entertainments, and non-dramatic texts, many of which have not been published since Nichols, including verses delivered by Eton scholars before the Queen (1563); John Lesley's Oratio (1574); Gabriel Harvey's Gratulationum Valdinensium (1578); and the Oxford and Cambridge verses on the death of Queen Elizabeth (1603). The editions are supported by translations of all non-English material, full scholarly annotation, illustrations, and maps. This will make John Nichols's The Progresses and Public Processions of Queen Elizabeth: A New Edition of the Early Modern Sources the most comprehensive collection of early modern texts pertaining to the court and culture of Queen Elizabeth.

Review:

five sumptuous volumes, with over a hundred illustrations, some rare ... Years of research of the highest quality have produced an Elizabethan treasure trove. (Brian Vickers, TLS Books of the Year 2015)

[An] astounding scholarly accomplishment. No cultural, historical, social, or economic investigator of Elizabeth's reign can proceed without the new Nichols. (David M. Bergeron, Renaissance Quarterly)

[Provides] an unprecedented amount of data which extend far beyond the original collection ... Scholars are now put in a position to say, again, "it's in Nichols" - but one is not allowed to ask "which edition?" any more. It is the Oxford New Edition, no doubt about that (Carlo M. Bajetta, Review of English Studies)

This is an outstanding edition ... It will quickly become the first port of call for those studying Elizabethan progresses, entertainments and court culture. It provides fascinating insights into the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century world of antiquarian studies and printing ... a superb resource for undergraduate dissertations. (Natalie Mears, English Historical Review)
