A Medieval Book of Seasons, Marie Collins, Virginia Davis
7 Marie Collins, Virginia Davis A Medieval Book of Seasons
Harpercollins October 1991 0060168218 / 9780060168216 Hardcover Used - Very Good Very Good 
No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. Remainder mark on bottom edge. . . . . . . . . . The lives of our ancestors were vastly different from our own. Labour and leisure activity had a seasonal cadence, depending on the length of daylight and agricultural needs, and a long, cold winter meant real hardship. Yet we can still easily identify with some aspects of their lives, shown here in contemporary illustrations - young lovers walking in the May countryside, sheep shearing in summer, families picking fruit from autumn hedgerows. With the aid of an informative text, vivid pictures from 'Books of Hours' and richly-illuminated manuscripts, the authors give an insight into medieval life.

'Louis XIV had created the largest army Europe had seen since Roman times, and he encouraged his marshals to fight with Roman ruthlessness. For forty years, it was unstoppable - no army and no alliance could stand against the Sun King's soldiers.' 'Then, on August 14, 1704, amidst the pomp and splendor of a court celebration honoring his military conquests, Louis received word that the unthinkable had occurred: his 'invincible' army not only had suffered its first defeat in two generations, but had been utterly routed. An entire army of 60,000 men had disappeared and its commander had been taken prisoner by the English.' 'The Battle of Blenheim changed the course of history. Louis's hitherto unbeaten army was destroyed in a day, never to recover. And just as astonishing to contemporary observers was that the British, seemingly overnight, had become a power in Europe for the first time since Henry V beat the French at Agincourt.' 'In Battle for Europe, Charles Spencer recounts how, under the command of the military genius John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough, the British army was transformed from an unruly, ragtag collection of misfits and social outcasts into a highly disciplined fighting force. British soldiers made up only a fifth of the victorious allied army at Blenheim, but their contribution was decisive. In the wake of Blenheim, the greatest land victory won under an English commander on foreign soil since 1415, the British took their first faltering steps toward empire.'--Jacket.

20 Chiara Frugoni Books, Banks, Buttons: And Other Inventions from the Middle Ages
Columbia University Press April 2005 0231128134 / 9780231128131 Soft Cover Used - Like New 
CLEAN!! No marks. Might as well be new. Appears unread. ...................... Once regarded by historians as a period of intellectual stagnation, the Middle Ages were actually a time of extraordinary cultural and technological innovation. This entertaining romp through the inventions of the period tells the story of the first appearance of dozens of items and ideas of lasting significance. From this misunderstood age we get our buttons, our underwear, and our trousers; we entertain ourselves with medieval playing cards, tarot cards, and chess. It was during the Middle Ages that domesticated cats first found their way into our houses, along with glazed windows, dining tables and chairs, and fireplaces. Numerous labor-saving devices originated then as well, including the wheelbarrow, the windmill and watermill, and the effective use of the horse. War became more deadly with the introduction of gunpowder, while travel over water became less so thanks to the compass and the rudder. Time itself emerged into recognizably modern form, with the advent of clocks?based on the escapement mechanism?that measured hours of equal length independent of the changing seasons. More cosmic notions of time developed as well, as the new realm of purgatory broke the traditional dichotomy of heaven and hell. Even Santa Claus first captured the imagination of children during the Middle Ages. Ranging from the invention of eyeglasses (by a now-forgotten layperson who sought to keep his methods secret, the better to profit from them) to the creation of the fork (at first regarded as an instrument of diabolical perversion but embraced when it helped people handle another invention of the age, pasta), this beautifully illustrated volume is a fitting tribute to an era from which we still benefit today.
