To the Most High and Excellent Prince: Dedicating Books to Henry, Prince of Wales

Published in Prince Henry Revived: Image and Exemplarity in Early Modern England, ed. Timothy Wilks (London: Paul Holberton, 2007), 104-133. An expansion of a section of John's doctoral dissertation on early modern book dedications, the essay combines the techniques of quantitative analysis and descriptive bibliography. If not for his untimely death in 1612, Prince Henry would have succeeded his father, James I, as king of England. The many book dedications Prince Henry received form the basis for a rich case study in the role literary patronage played in early modern culture.
