Forty-two authentically detailed drawings depict daily activities in castle, village, monastery, field, and forest, evoking the excitement and pageantry of tournaments, sieges, banquets, battles, and fairs. Whether the illustrations depict a lord playing chess with his son or a peddler selling his wares, the true look and feel of medieval life comes through, from architectural details to the particulars of dress at all levels of society.
