LONDON.CASSELL,1974.UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn.FINE/NFINE.No owner inscrptn but price-clipped to dw/dj.Pictorial colour dw/dj with spine/backstrip slightly sunned/faded with minimal bumping to head+foot.Black cloth bds with gilt silhouette of two armoured knights fighting to upper bd and gilt letters to spine/ backstrip, with pictorial illustrated eps.8vo, 240pp includes profuse b/w+colour contemporary illus/plates; b/w+colour photographs, biblio and an index. The armoured knight on horseback, his shield ablaze with the heraldic arms of his line, his lance and flashing broadsword is the best-known, most spectacular and - for most people - the most typical and romantic figure of the Middle Ages.Without knights and the code of behaviour and ideals attached to them and known as 'chivalry', medieval European civilisation as we know it would not have existed.The knight dominated the theory and practice of warfare until the arrival of the English longbow and, later, gunpowder.He inspired some of the great masterpieces of European literature and eventually became one of the world's great legendary figures.He gave European nobility its heraldry, he inspired much of the pageantry and traditional splendour we associate with the Middle Ages and in his time he gave a new dimension to Christianity.He represented a whole way of life and an ideal of human behaviour in a warlike society.Even though many knights (if not the majority) failed to live up to the high ideals of chivalry which knighthood inspired, they created the popular image of the gallant gentleman-adventurer on horseback. With its 24pp of colour illus and over a hundred others in monochrome, this book gives a clear, lively and thoroughly documented account of the origins and development of this astonishing brotherhood of arms, from the time of the first mailed warriors on horseback in the Dark Ages to the Hundred Years War when knight pageantry reached its peak and fell beneath the arrow storm of the English yeomen, never to rise again., LONDON.CASSELL,1974.
