Edited by Peter F. AINSWORTH, Godfried CROENEN

0.00 CHF tax incl.

This is the first volume in a new three-volume, complete edition of Book III of Froissart’s Chronicles, based on the important Saint Vincent manuscript (Besançon municipal library MS 865). Froissart’s prologue expresses his desire to write history as opposed to mere chronicles, and leads into the justly celebrated ‘Voyage en Béarn’, his account of a journey made in late 1388 to gather eyewitness accounts of recent hostilities in the Iberian peninsula. Other eyewitness narratives that Froissart recounts are those of Espan de Lion, the Bascot de Mauléon, and a rather indiscreet old squire encountered at the court of Gaston Fébus. The volume also contains the haunting of Peter of Béarn and the strange business of Gaston Fébus’s spirit familiar. It concludes with the battle of Aljubarrota.
