Michaud - Histoire des Croisades - 1860

Michaud - Histoire des Croisades - 1860

A lovely edition. Excellent work on the history of the six Crusades until the war against the Turks, much improved compared to the previous books, since the typographic execution is much more meticulous and elegant, it is set out in a way which aids in thematic research, and the accuracy of proper names is irreproachable.

Some gaps in the previous editions have also been filled by a final historical annex of the French settlements in southern Italy and on the island of Cyprus.
Each volume is accompanied by a beautiful, high quality engraved plate.
