Inhaltsangabe: This illustrated book of days may be enjoyed in its own right as a survey of medieval craftsmanship, alternatively, it may be used as an any-year diary, or as a birthday and anniversary book. Each month is devoted to a particular craft with full colour pictures of craftsmen at work and examples of the finest surviving products of their art. All the illustrations are of objects or manuscripts made in Britain and Europe, dating between 1066 and 1500 AD. Relevant saints' days for each craft are noted with quotations from contemporary sources and, in the cooks' month, a medieval recipe. The introduction considers what time meant to the medieval craftsman, how his days were regulated, and how the seasons affected his work.

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
