English Historical Review published a review as an advance article on 24th June 2019. This review contains a number of elementary errors, not least regarding the length of Wood’s biography. This is relevant to both the first paragraph (which claims incorrectly that Part 1 was longer) and several of the conclusions in the final one. This error has been acknowledged, OUP have issued a correction to the online version and will be including one in the print issue in due course.
