about

These vivid Annals, written by a Franciscan friar in Ghent c.1308-10, describe events in the Low Countries between 1297 and 1310. The introduction shows their relation to the rivalry of Philip IV of France and Edward I of England -- and this in its turn was a remarkable episode in the historyof a land torn between its political intimacy with the French crown and its economic links with England. But its interest is even greater than this, as Bryce Lyon pointed out in a generous review of the present volume when it first appeared. The central event in it is the Battle of Courtrai in 1302,when the Flemish burghers destroyed the army of Philip IV -- and the Annals show 'how Courtrai and the events about it were in large part products of the social and economic turmoil of industrial Flanders'.This edition is reprinted from the original published in the Nelson's Medieval Classics series in 1951.
