Description

Trade paperback. 496 pages. Notes in the Form of Glossary and Index of Persons. Selected, translated and edited by Geoffrey Brereton. Illustrated with double-page map. This translation was first published in 1968, with minor revisions in 1978. The present copy was reprinted 1981. Includes an introduction and chronological background. Froissart was born in Valenciennes (c. 1337) and accompanied Queen Philippa to England in 1361. His Chronicles encompass his travels from this point until the beginning of the reign of Henry IV providing first hand accounts of his travels and history of the contemporary scene as he saw it. Part historian, part war-correspondent, Froissart was one of medieval Europe’s greatest writers. No previous ownership marks. A used copy that has been read but is in good condition. One signature appears sprung, but still attached. No writing, marking or underlining to text. Good.
