Description:
In German. Prof Mayer is the Professor of Medieval and Modern History at the University of Kiel and a renowned authority on medieval history.

In his Preliminary Remarks (Vorbemerkung) Prof. Mayer mentions that the excellent work of Prof. Claude Cahen (to whom the book is dedicated) has tended to overshadow inquiry into the important Crusader state The Principality of Antioch (1098–1287), and this work seeks to provide material to remedy that deficiency.

This is volume 6 of the prestigious series Monumenta Germania Historica from the Austrian Academy of Sciences.

Flyleaf bears signature of Prof. K.M. Setton (1914-1995), eminent medievalist at the Princeton Institute for Advanced Study, to whom Prof. Mayer gave this copy.

Description:
King's College London seal gilt stamped on from cover, gilt dentelles inside edges of boards, three page edges gilt. Foldout in in fine condition. 367 pages.Robert Curzon Jr., 14th Baron Zouche (1810 - 1873) was a traveler, author, briefly a member of Parliament, and a collector, if not a connoisseur, of Biblical and other ancient manuscripts. He traveled extensively in the Levant (Egypt, the Greek Islands, Jerusalem, Greece and Mont Athos) beginning in 1833. Certainly by his collecting (some said looting) a considerable number of priceless manuscripts, they have been preserved, but whether he was a gentleman traveler and bibliographer or a gentleman thief who cared little about significance and more about profit, is disputed.In any event he is an engaging writer and provides lively and interesting pictures of Arab and Greek life in a turbulent time, soon after the Greek War of Independence. Travel was arduous and dangerous at the time, and required an adventurous spirit. He wrote down the account… Read More
