The Autumn of the Middle Ages The Autumn of the Middle Ages

by Huizinga, Johan

“Herfsttij der Middeleeuwen” - the original title - is a brilliant portrait of life, thought, and art in fourteenth and fifteenth-century France and the Netherlands. For Huizinga, this period marked not only the birth of a dramatically new era in history, the Renaissance, but the fullest, ripest phase of medieval life and thought. Now, for the first time ever, the original version of this classic work has been translated into English. Several notes clarify Huizinga’s references to things which would be common knowledge only to Dutch readers: paintings, sculptures, and carvings. This edition is the first in any language to include a full range of illustrations. A $29.95 value. NOW on sale!
