Description

 A visual and literary feast, The History of Chivalry and Armour  is a study of medieval knights in all their grandeur, fully displaying  their instruments of siege, ornaments, and entertainments. Reproduced  from a rare nineteenth-century masterpiece, here are the origins, codes,  and practices of knighthood, alongside magnificent hand-colored  engravings of armor, weapons, and the men who bore them. Enjoy  breathtaking shields, helmets, and horse coverings. Revel in  meticulously rendered lances, spears, and spiked clubs, as well as  incredibly engineered mobile siege towers and muskets. The richly  decorated equipment used in warfare and jousting shine brightly in this  treasury, accompanied by authentic literature from poets and troubadors  of the age.
