Jean de Joinville was a 13th-century French historian who is best known for his biographical work on the life of Saint Louis. In addition to ‘Saint Louis’, Joinville wrote a personal memoir which, curiously, contains much of his ‘History of Saint Louis’. In fact, these works are often thought to be one in the same as Joinville speaks about himself as much as he does the king. It is an important work describing the events and life of 13th-century France, especially the life of King Louis IX and his leadership during the Seventh Crusade.

 

This beautiful 1807 English edition, translated by Thomas Johnes, includes full-page engravings and folding maps – with a map of the Holy Land!
