303 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."

This book was published in June 1938 in connection with the celebration of the three-hundredth anniversary of the New Sweden colony founded in 1638 on the Delaware River by settlers from Sweden. Reviews the role of Swedes in the early history and colonization of the U.S., gives a picture of the land from which they came, and lists their contributions to American life in the fields of business, politics, the arts, and science. Facinating look at the immigration and migration of the Swedish people from Sweden to Delaware and later great parts of Minnesota. A history of their country is included trials and tribulations of migrating to America and also a section of the Swedish contribution to American life and famous Americans that have Swedish ancestory such as the founder of Walgreens and Charles Lindbergh."
