I am trying to help one of my students out. I am looking for any non-fiction book on King John of England - even books with just a chapter on him  Have credits so a deal is not required.  Thanks! Linda

Well, Thomas Costain wrote a series about the Plantagenet kings of England, and two of those books, The Magnificent Century and The Conquering Family have stuff in them about King John "Lackland". I have both these books in paperback, although they are not posted to my shelf. I had planned to read them at some point but since it will probably be a long time before I get around to them, I am willing to let them go since someone actually needs them.

 

Let me know if you are interested.
