The Reign of Chivalry., Barber, Richard
5 Barber, Richard The Reign of Chivalry.
St. Martin's Press 1980. Hardcover in DJ. Good/Good Quarto 
208 pp

"The idea of chivalry is one that has fascinated readers, poets and historians for over 200 years, since the first attempts in the mid-eighteenth century to give a critical account of it. In the nineteenth century the imagery of chivalry played a large part in the Romantic literature: Thomas Arnold thought it a pernicious influence; Tennyson turned the knights into Victorian gentlemen; and Malory became a household name. The increasing interest today in things medieval, whether they be music, art or literature, naturally includes chivalry, one of the most original concepts of the medieval mind. The Reign of Chivalry presents a broad picture of the chivalric world, and shows how chivalry affected by great social movements, great writers and great events, and analyses the legacy it passed down to later ages."

Dorset Press 1990 0880295988 / 9780880295987 Hardcover in DJ. Good Good Octavo 
223 pp "This remarkable book chronicles the momentous events of the Fourth Crusade which altered the face of the world. It brings to life the men and their times, the background of the Crusade and its actual chronology, the raising of the Crusade in France and its movement across Europe to Venice. It was in Venice that treacherous dealings embroiled it in one of the most despicable acts in human history and left Eastern Europe open to the eventual Turkish conquest, a conquest which Constantinople had withstood for nine hundred years. In addition, the Crusade set the stage for the later Balkan problem and the inevitable division of Eastern and Western Europe which survives to this day. Contrary to most Western opinion, it also began the westward movement of artistic influence which culminated in the Renaissance. "

Covici - Friede 1934 Cloth hardcover in DJ Fair, inner hinge cracked Poor dj, some pieces missing on head and foot of spine of dj. Octavo 
607 pp Nicolson, J.U. (Translator into modern English and poetic versification); Gerould, Gordon Hall (Introduction) Kent, Rockwell (illustrator). "The Canterbury Tales is a collection of stories written by Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century (two of them in prose, the rest in verse). The tales, some of which are originals and others not, are contained inside a frame tale and told by a collection of pilgrims on a pilgrimage from Southwark to Canterbury to visit the shrine of Saint Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral. The Canterbury Tales are written in Middle English. Although the tales are considered to be his magnum opus, some believe the structure of the tales is indebted to the works of The Decameron, which Chaucer is said to have read on an earlier visit to Italy."
