Tuchman, Barbara W - A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous Fourteenth Century - ( Item 138994 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2015. Reprint. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Introduced by Laurence Stone. A hugely accessible account of an age of extraordinary conflicts. Described by Laurence Stone in the New York Review of Books as 'beautifully written, careful and thorough in its scholarship', Tuchman's history offers up this period of contradiction and excess as a mirror to the similarly calamitous 20th century. As she quotes from Voltaire in her introduction: 'History never repeats itself, man always does.' This edition features full colour pictures that illustrate the grandeur and the horror of the period; images of pogroms and beheadings sit next to kings and knights in their pomp. A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous Fourteenth Century book. Bound in black cloth. Set in Utopia. 704 pages plus 16 pages of full-colour plates. Printed map endpapers drawn by Reginald Piggott. 10" x 6¼". A century born from the horror of the Black Death. From the Folio Society description.
