About this Item

8 volumes. 7 x 9 1/2. 1486 pages. Decorated with 6 hand colored maps, heraldic headpieces & tail pieces, and over 600 hand colored coats-of-arms of English, Scottish, and Irish princes and knights drawn by Paul Woodroffe. Text includes lengthy indices of persons and places, Holland-backed blue paper boards, paper spine labels (extra labels tipped-in at rear). A little wear to labels. A fine, beautiful set. One of 350 sets printed by Bernard Newdigate on untrimmed Batchelor handmade paper. One of the three major works issued at Shakespeare Head Press, which "became the most mature and sophisticated of the [between war] private presses, producing some works in the grand manner which are a great pleasure to read and examine now." Colin Franklin goes on to say (The Private Presses pp. 147-149) "Newdigate must stand as the best user of Caslon in the history of book design, of pure typography as adequate in itself." Froissart's chronicles, 1322-1400, describes the conditions leading to the Hundred Years War, and the first 50 years of that war, and the age of chivalryy. With the printed publisher's note. This translation, first printed by Pynson in 1523. Bookseller Inventory # 15271
