Claude-François MENESTRIER

De la chevalerie ancienne et moderne, avec la manière d'en faire les preuves, pour tous les ordres de chevalerie

Chez Robert J. B. de la Caille, à Paris 1683, in-12 (8,2x15,2cm), (32) 600pp., relié.


New edition, after the original was published in 1677. Illustrated 3 panches containing several crests and leaflets tables. Quite rare. Full sheepskin vintage blonde. Back tooled raised. Part of title in red morocco. Upper joint open head and tail with gaps. Same lower joint split tail. Although the author establishes a history of chivalry and its laws and rules, it focuses on chivalry as undeniable proof of nobility, and how it stands out in the coats of arms belonging to the ancient chivalry. The history of the orders of chivalry and their impact on the nobility is particularly detailed. The author does not stop in his study of France and has spread to Europe. The book contains many historical details on the subject of great interest. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
