About this Item

"At the end of the night of the Dark Ages a multitude of our ancestors left their homes. They started out on what they called the voyage of God.They were marching out of the familiar, known world into Asia to set free with their own hands the Sepulcher of Christ. They wanted to live there, in the promised land, ruled by no king but by the will of God. On the shoulders of their jackets they wore a cross, sewn out of cloth, and because of this they were called the cruciati, or cross-bearers.In this volume is told the story of the first crusaders. It begins with their setting out, and it ends with the death of the last survivor. Eight hundred and thirty-five years have passed since then, and the lives of these men are known to us only the chronicles of their day.Several of these chronicles were written by men who marched with the crusaders, by two chaplains and an unknown soldier. Two other narratives ere finished in Beyond the Sea after the march, and we have the accounts of others who saw the crusaders pass.It is the story of a dozen men, most of them leaders, who started out on that long journey- what they saw on the road, and what they did, and what befell them at the Sepulcher of Christ."There is some rubbing to the edges of the binding and water damage to the boards, otherwise, in fine condition with the text and plates well conserved. 368pp. Bookseller Inventory # 000126

Terms of Sale:

Private merchant account, no taxes on sales and a standard shipping fee in accordance to rates.

Shipping Terms:

U.S. Shipping:
We ship our books according to media rate through the US Postal Services. This is the cheapest way for us to ship you your books. We will contact you if shipping will cost more than the listed price. Please note that heavier and larger-sized books will cost more to ship as the general shipping cost is used for average-weight/sized books. If you would like your book insured, specifically packed or delivered faster it will cost more and you will need to contact us.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.

International Shipping:
As a standard for shipping, we ship all our books in a Global Priority Flat Rate mailer envelope. This costs just a couple bucks more than ground and will get there in 4 to 10 business days instead of the one to two months it would for Ground. Priority in a box costs a bit more (about 17.50,) but has that added bit of protection. We're more than happy to ship Ground for $9.00 or Express for $30.00. Let us know what you prefer if the option isn't listed.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.
