4 volumes bound in 2, rebound in modern half red leather over decorative paper in an antique style. Old library stamps to title, index and occasionally to the top right corner. Slight soiling to title, quite clean otherwise and an attractive and attractively printed copy. Monstrelet meant to carry on the work of Froissart, and extended the Chronicles from 1400-1444. Additions were pieced together and tacked onto the end of his work, extending it to 1515. Monstrelet, who was present when Joan of Arc was interrogated by Philip the Good, includes a great deal of primary source material that otherwise would have been lost to history.
