Description
1844 John Froissart Chronicles Medieval Hundred Years' War Chivalry Illustrated



The ‘Chronicles’ of Jean Froissart have continually been perceived as an important work on medieval history for centuries, since its inception in the 14th-century. While some of the subjects covered are repetitive and insignificant, many topics are of utmost importance including famous battles, deaths of monarchs, and the Catholic Church Great Schism. According to Adams in the “Manual of Historical Literature,”

"Froissart might be called the great interviewer of the Middle Ages. The 'Chronicles' are universally considered as the most vivid and faithful picture we have of events in the fourteenth century. As a picture of the most favorable side of chivalry, the work has no equal".



This mid-19th-century first American edition of ‘Chronicles’ was translated by Thomas Johnes out of the original French. Charmingly illustrated with 115 engravings.
