About the Author

Nadine Akkerman is a Postdoctoral Researcher and Lecturer in Early Modern English Literature at Leiden University, the Netherlands, and an Associate of the Centre for Editing Lives and Letters (CELL) in London. She is the editor of The Correspondence of Elizabeth Stuart, Queen of Bohemia (3 volumes, of which the first appeared in 2011), for which her prize-winning Ph.D. (2008) serves as the groundwork. She has been contracted to write a biography of Elizabeth.

Reviews

Akkerman's editing standards are lofty indeed. Armed with digital surrogates, Akkerman's research team checked each letter no less than three times, and at least once by the editor against the original manuscript. Each is quoted in its original language and then, if necessary, translated in English. The edition also prints the letters to Elizabeth, which allow us to follow the epistolary exchanges ... While the texts are impressive, the annotations are a marvel in their own right. Akkerman's careful identification of all persons and events represents a running commentary on the history of several dozen states. * Thomas Cogswell, English Historical Review *
[A] detailed record of an active and articulate early modern queen, albeit one without a country. * Renaissance Quarterly *
