A Dictionary of Chivalry

Uden, Grant [Illustrations by Pauline Baynes 1922-2008]


(Book #ID 102121)

Published by Longmans Young Books Ltd., London and Harlow First Edition 1968. 1968.

First edition hard back binding in publisher's original burgundy cloth covers, gilt title and author lettering to the spine. 8vo. 9˝'' x 6Ľ''. The making of this Dictionary arose from the author's wish to give, in an accurate yet exciting work of reference, a picture of the Knight and the things that occupied his life and thought, his education and training; his armour, weapons and equipment; his horses and their accoutrements; the stories he heard and read; the captains he followed and the men he led; the complex code he was Sworn to; the enterprises in which he was engaged; and the cathedrals, abbeys and churches where memorials of chivalry survive. The book does not seek to hide the dirt, cruelty and intolerance behind the elaborate courtesies, the pageantry and the heroism. But the author believes, with the German philosopher, that 'the ideals cherished in the hearts of men enter into the character of their actions', and that, though the aspirations of chivalry were often dishonoured, the world would have been a poorer place without them. There are well over 1,000 entries (with plentiful cross references), ranging from short definitions to several paragraphs, and there are many extracts from literature and early chronicles. There is also a brief classified index at the end. The illustrations in full colour and in black and white were drawn by Pauline Baynes page by page, to keep text and pictures side by side. This remarkable illustrator has captured all the changing moods of the entries, in splendid pictures ranging from gay interpretations of the fancies of mediaeval storytellers to accurate and detailed drawings of armour, weapons, etc., from contemporary sources. Contains 352 printed pages of text with monochrome and colour illustrations throughout. Fine condition book in Fine condition dust wrapper, not price clipped, 63s. Dust wrapper supplied in archive acetate film protection. Member of the P.B.F.A. ISBN 0582153719
