ENGLAND IN THE FOURTEENTH CENTURY: Proceedings of the 1985 Harlaxton Symposium

Woodbridge, Suffolk: The Boydell Press, 1986. First Edition. Hardcover. "Literature is used to elucidate not only the cultural but also the economic and political history of the period; studies of manuscripts provide important evidence for the intellectual or professional interests of nobles and civil servants; and examinations of legal and ecclesiastical material provide new sources for the social history of medieval England. Architectural and textile history alike give glimpses of royal and aristocratic patronage; there are indications of the impact of the Black Death on political and cultural life; and a number of papers point not only to public and private interest in history during the 14th century, but also to the later enthusiasm of antiquarians for this period of English medieval history." Numerous textual figures. Octavo. Original red cloth binding, with gitl titles. A near fine copy in like dust jacket. Near fine / Near fine. Item #69481
