This is huge and consists of two huge volumes bound into one, each was
about 720 pages, or about 1440 total, with about 4000 illustrations.
The majority of the two volumes in one are architectural renderings
of things medieval in France, but they also include armor, costume,
tools, furniture, weapons, feast gear, saddles, stirrups, barding, etc.
It is a massive work done by a number of artists. You've been looking
at illustrations from it in many newer books for years.
This book was written in the mid 1800's by Viollet le Duc, who restored
Notre Dame, Carcassone, and other French monuments. While many would
argue with his methods and results, it did preserve the structures after
centuries of neglect.
I asked a friend in England to let me know if she ever saw the book for
sale over there to let me know as I knew other folks would love the
resource. Today I got the email. (Thanks Mel.)
The last time I saw it for sale here it was from Scholar's Bookshelf,
which often sells French Medieval books (in french). It cost about $125
then. That was a couple of years ago.
