Jean Froissart, c.1337 – c.1405, often referred to in English as John Froissart, was one of the most important of the chroniclers of medieval France.

Thomas Johnes, 1748 - 1816, was an agriculturist and translator of medieval French chronicles. "In 1802 Johnes set up a printing press at Pwllpeiran, some distance from the main house. Encouraged by his many literary friends, including George Cumberland, Robert Anderson, and Lord Chancellor Thurlow, he embarked on a prolific career as a translator of the medieval French chronicles." (DNB)


The bindings are tight and firm. The hinges of volume one are cracked but still generally firm, and the hinges of volume two are starting, but still firm. There is some wear to the extremities, including some rubbing adn edge wear, with the spine of volume one missing, and a small lower section of the spine of volume two. Internally the pages are generally bright with scattered background foxing and the occasional handling mark. Overall the condition is fair, with a very good interior. A great reference copy of an important historical text.
