352 pp, 9 1/2" H. Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "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; 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. 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 b&w 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." Very tiny stain on half-title page, tiny foxing marks and very light browning on top of text block, wrinkling at bottom of spine, minor faint color loss on spine and boards. Dust jacket has minor edge wear, light wrinkling at bottom of spine, light browning at top edge, minor rubbing.
