Daughters of Artemis: The Huntress in the Middle Ages and Renaissance

£24.99

Product description

Richard Almond D S Brewer, an imprint of Boydell & Brewer Ltd, 2009. Hardback; 165 x 240 mm; green boards with gold titles on the spine; xiv & 202 pages. Original unclipped dust jacket. Thirty colour plates and 12 black and white plates.

The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound and tight. There is a thin line of discoloration on the back of the dust jacket next to the spine, and a similar faint line near to the outer edge at page 147. Otherwise the pages are clean with no discoloration to the edges.

Hunting for sport, food and raw materials was a universal activity in the Middle Ages. However, the medieval hunting manuals and treatises written by male authors, as well as narratives and romances, present hunting as the exclusive leisure prerogative of gently-born educated men. Here, using evidence drawn from both contemporary documents and images, particularly from illuminated manuscripts, tapestries, paintings, carvings, engravings and prints, the author shows clearly that women from all ranks of society were actively engaged. Beautifully illustrated, this revealing study of a previously unexplored aspect of women's roles is an invaluable addition to our understanding of the dynamics of the medieval community.
