1904 Chronicon Adae De Usk
What Our Customers Say...
Publishers' Original Binding
Adam of Usk's chronicles of English history from 1377 to 1421 written in Latin was the author's most important work. It provides insight into contemporary society, people and events, including the author's encounters with Kings and Popes, the Peasant's Revolt and the visit of the Byzantine Emperor Manuel II Palaiologo's visit to Richard II. Only a single manuscript survives.
Usk (c1352-1430) was a Welsh priest, historian and chronicler. Richard II was often attacked in his works.
Edited by Sir Edward Maunde Thompson (1840-1929), a palaeographer and first Director of the British Museum.
A second edition of this work.
In the original full cloth binding. Externally very smart, with just slight bumping to the head and tail of the spine. Ownership inscription and stamp to the front endpaper. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are slightly age-toned but otherwise clean.
Very Good Indeed
