Résumé éditeur :

A rollicking account of none of the most famous medieval knights, the Book of the Deeds of Jacques de Lalaing is among the finest productions of the last flowering of Flemish manuscript illumination. A knight fot the Age : Jacques de Lalaing and the Art of Chivalry reveals, for the first time, the full complexity of this illuminates romance.

Lalaing was a celebrated knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece and perhaps the most famed tournament fighter of the Middle Ages ; the story of his life unfolds like a fast-paced adventure novel. Selected biographical episodes are accompanied here by stunning reproductions of the manuscript’s miniatures – never before pubished in color – allowing readers to follow Lalaing on his knightly journeys and experience the thrilling triumphs of his tournaments and battles. Essays by the world’s leading medievalists provide rich texture and a greater understanding of the manuscript’s background, creation, and reception. (4e de couv.)
