ounter of dealers fairs and markets manufactures commerce industry and fashion and dress will attract the attention of the reader in this work. The author has taken great pains in reproducing by means of strict facsimiles the engraving and chromolithography pertaining to the Middle Ages and the rarest engravings of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries as well as the most precious miniatures of the manuscripts preserved in principal libraries of Europe. This has not made it easier to understand the subject under study more intimately but has also added to the beauty and value of the book. The detailed introduction by the Editor provides added and latest information about the subject under study. It is hoped that the book and the subject would be of greatest interest not only to the man of science and students of European history but to the common man of the world also. Besides the way the book has been produced it can be an excellent coffee table book.
