Bears bookplate of K.M. Setton (1914-1995) of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.Heinrich Hagenmeyer (1834-1914) was a groundbreaking scholar of the Crusades, whose standards for publishing and editing sources, particularly for the First Crusade, set the standard for historians ever since.Walter the Chancellor, a 12th century Crusader and Chancellor of Antioch, wrote his work on Antiochene Wars between 1119 and 1122. He provides a compelling first-hand account of the battle between Roger of Salerno's Antiochene Crusader army and that of Ilghazi of Mardin, who soundly defeated the Crusaders and killed Roger on the Field of Blood in 1119.. He also sheds some light on relations with nearby Muslim states.This is a hard-to-find first edition of Hagenmeyer's edited, indexed and annotated Bella Antiochena.

267 pages. Small stain on flyleaf, bears bookplate and signature of Prof. K.M. Setton (1914-1995) of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. Binding absolutely sound, all pages tight and bright, with perhaps a little age-darkening.Reinhold Röhricht (1842-1905) was arguably one of the most indefatigable, intensive, thorough and meticulous compilers, editors and organizers of materials relating to the history and topography of the Holy Land and the Crusades. Although not an historical synthesizer nor indeed an historian, but perhaps more of an antiquarian and researcher, Röhricht virtually singlehandedly laid the foundation for modern historical research and study of the Crusades.Although somewhat dated now, his critical edition of materials relating to the First Crusade still remain of value to modern historians

Description:
Text is first edition, one of 500 copies on laid rag paper ("papier d'Hollande" - copy # not filled in), binding probably not contemporary, Very good condition, with a little foxing, particularly in first part of volume. Includes all eight of the chansons.The famous chanson de geste in 9000 lines, known in a version of a lost original composed about 1180 and attributed to Richard le Pèlerin, a pilgrim who was on the spot and began composition during the siege of Antioch, inspired by the events of 1097–99. The climax of the First Crusade, the conquest of Antioch and Jerusalem, laid the foundations of the Crusader states. The Chanson was elaborated and to a degree mythologized and became part of the Crusader cycle of romances popular in the 14th century.
The Chanson was pretty much forgotten until it was printed and published in 1848 (during the Gothic Revival) by the French scholar and medievalist Alexis Paulin Paris (1800-1881), the first holder of the chair of Medieval literature at the Collège… Read More

Description:
Like new except for some slight age-darkening, some slight tanning of spine and rear top edge of dust jacket and a very little wrinkling at top of dust jacket. No damage to volume itself; a coupe of light pencil marks.Victor Louis Ménage (1920 – 2015) was a British historian, Turkologist, specialist in the early Ottoman Empire, holder of the Chair of Turkish in the University of London, and an editor of the Encyclopedia of Islam. His important monograph is one of the best studies of the evolution and origins of some of the material in Mevlânâ Mehmed Neshri's important history of the Ottoman Empire. Neshri (also Neşri) (1450 - 1520) was a relatively obscure figure apart from his role as an early Ottoman historian. His work has provided an important source for the history of the Ottomans of the time, and was drawn from a number of sources and traditions, as well as his personal experiences of the death of Mehmed ll and the subsequent Janissary riots of 1481 .Ménage identifies many of the… Read More

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.
