4to. 32 by 27 cm. 200 hand-colored engraved costume plates. Plates depict both famous personages such as Petrarch and types of characters and professions of the period. Also, as typical of the ambitious color plate costume books of the era, a number of plates are not of fashion but rather, historic scenes, rituals, and other aspects of Medieval culture. Colas 377. One quarter contemporary red morocco. Marbled boards. Bindings repaired, including a repair of one joint, and of the hinges generally. Rubbing and wear to binding. Scattered foxing, affecting some plates, ranging from trivial and light to occasionally a moderate level. Most plates read clean, however.

Le Moyen Age, Callendier, M.
2 Callendier, M. Le Moyen Age
Cloth Fine 
N.d., circa late 1800s. Folio-sized. 38 by 31 cm. Unpaginated, [36] pp., including title. With stunning borders, mostly in the Medieval style, often illuminated, plus two watercolors of castles, and mounted illuminated leaf of vellum for title, and a mounted vellum leaf painting of a troubadour. This manuscript or homemade book was quite possibly the creation of a French student, who in the text described, always in a calligraphic quality cursive, chivalry, Medieval commerce, literature, education, heraldry, armaments, architecture, guilds, music and policing, the Inquisition, and hunting. The synopses are well-done for what they are, but it is the visual dimension that makes this manuscript a treasure. The pages are heavy card. The initials on the front board are M.T. (Callendier might be Tallendier). On the rear board is a gilt insignia for a school, partially rubbed out.
