The ‘Chronicles’ of Jean Froissart have continually been perceived as an important work on medieval history for centuries, since its inception in the 14th-century. While some of the subjects covered are repetitive and insignificant, many topics are of utmost importance including famous battles, deaths of monarchs, and the Catholic Church Great Schism. According to Adams in the “Manual of Historical Literature,”

The ‘Chronicles’ are universally considered as the most vivid and faithful picture we have of events in the fourteenth century. As a picture of the most favorable side of chivalry, the work has no equal.”

 

In 15th-century France, Enguerrand de Monstrelet began working on another collection of ‘Chronicles’, which were highly influenced by Froissart. Monstrelet’s work deals with the second half of the Hundred Years’ War and is considered valuable because of its accuracy and authentic sources.

 

This 1853 edition is an exquisite two-volume set with numerous in-text illustrations throughout.
