Title continues: "From the Latter part of the reign of Edward II. to the Coronation of Henry IV. Newly translated from the French Editions, with variations and additions from many celebrated Mss."
Twelve volumes. The second edition, with a life of the author, a criticism on his history and a dissertation on his poetry added. Full leather with gilt bands to the boards. Titles and date to the spine.
These volumes are in very nice condition. The leather is sound with a little rubbing. The spines are somewhat faded (and the gilt of the titles has pretty much gone) but still an attractive work. Internally clean and tidy throughout, with just a little foxing to the pages.
The Chronicles are an important part of the expression of Chivalry in fourteenth century England and France. Although sometimes inaccurate, and often ignoring the history of the “common people” the work is nevertheless an important window to the relationship between the two countries in this turbulent period.
