I, offsetting & some foxing to title-page of same volume. Fascinating chronicles by Sir John Froissart, starting from the latter part of the reign of Edward II. to the coronation of Henry IV. John Froissart (ca. 1338-1410?) was a priest, canon, and treasurer of the Collegiate Church of Chimay. He is considered by many as perhaps the most entertaining and important historian of the Middle Ages. The wars between England and France, as well as the interior manners of the courts of England form the majority of his chronicles but his visits to Spain, Ireland, Italy and Scotland diversify his narrative with many passages from the history of those countries. Translated from the French by Thomas Johnes. Some age wear and minor staining on bindings. Minor chipping to head of spines on few volumes. Sporadic foxing throughout. Slightly heavier foxing on title-page and first few pages in some volumes. Plate volume in quarto but matching binding. Dentelles. Marbled endpapers. Unpaginated.

From title-page: "The Chronicles of Enguerrand de Monstrelet; containing an account of the cruel civil wars between the houses Orleans and Burgundy; of the possession of Paris and Normandy by the English; their expulsion thence; and of other memorable events that happened in the kingdom of France, as well as in other countries. A history of fair example, and of great profit to the French, beginning at the year MCCCC. where that of Sir John Froissart finishes, and ending at the year MCCCCLXVII. and continued by others to the year MDXVI." Important work by Enguerrand de Monstrelet (ca. 1400-1453) on European history from 1400-1467. Monstrelet's writings, dealing with the latter part of the Hundred Years' War, are historically important since they contain a large number of documents which are certainly, as well as speeches which are probably, authentic.
