Opinions about Edward IV have always been divided; for Sir Thomas More he was 'a goodly personage and very princely to behold, of heart courageous, politic in counsel', but chronicler John Warkworth wrote that 'the people looked for prosperity and peace but it came not'. These judgments are among the contemporary attitudes found in the documentary sources excerpted and collected in this compendium, with the introduction giving an overview of more recent assessments of Edward's reign. Previously published as Edward IV: A Source Book.
