Reviews - What do customers think about Le Mobilier Medieval- Medieval Furniture: Meubles Utensiles - Furniture & Implements?
Buy it only if you can't get something better. Mar 2, 2004
Despite the English subtitle, and the description as a 2 volume set, this is a single volume, possibly abridged (the notes to the index refer to over 500 pages, but there are < 400), French only reprint in a cheap & shoddy binding. No English summary or notes. My copy arrived with the spine partly ripped off, even though correctly packed & there was no damage to the packing - I'm unable to tell whether it was shipped to this site like this. The binding is similar to, but poorer than, cheap 'text book' hardcover binding.
