This is an auction for MEDIEVAL LIFE AND SOCIETY, a Folio Society set of four books.

These books are in their original slip cases.

They are:

* MEDIEVAL PEOPLE, by Eileen Power

* LIFE IN A MEDIEVAL VILLAGE, by Frances & Joseph Gies

* LIFE IN A MEDIEVAL CITY, by Frances & Joseph Gies


* LIFE IN A MEDIEVAL CASTLE, by Frances & Joseph Gies review of Life in a Medieval Village:

"Joseph and Frances Gies’s classic bestseller paints a lively and convincing portrait of rural people at work and at play in the Middle Ages. Focusing on the village of Elton, in the English East Midlands, the Gieses detail the agricultural advances that made communal living possible, explain what domestic life was like for serf and lord, and describe the central role of the church. Though the main focus is on Elton, c.1300, the Gieses supply enlightening historical context on the origin, development, and decline of the European village, itself an invention of the Middle Ages. Meticulously researched, Life in a Medieval Village is a remarkable account that illustrates the captivating world of the Middle Ages and demonstrates what it was like to live during a fascinating—and often misunderstood—era."

ABOUT THE AUTHORS: Frances Gies (1915 – 2013) and Joseph Gies (1916 – 2006) were historians and writers who collaborated on a number of books about the Middle Ages, and also wrote individual works. The Gieses are respected amongst historians and archeologists, and their books are on the recommended reading lists of a number of universities.
