Our Price:
Among the Folger's immense holdings of early illustrated books, few are as spectacular as those that commemorate the great events of the noble and royal life cycle--births, weddings, coronations, royal entries, and funerals. Drawing exclusively upon the magnificent volumes given to the Library since 1975 by Mrs. H. Dunscombe Colt, this catalogue provides an overview of early modern ceremonies, festivities, and processions and offers striking panoramas of popular as well as aristocratic urban life in pre-Revolutionary Europe.

Laura Hull Cofield, 1995, Folger Shakespeare Library, Paperback, 40 pages, 32 illustrations.
