Synopsis: An 1855 edition " translated from the French, with variations and editions from many celebrated manuscripts,  by Thomas Johnes  Esquire" of a vividly informative history begun at  the age of twenty, by John Froissard,  born in  Valenciennes about the year 1337:   and later  described in a manuscript taken from the archives of the chapter of St. Monegunda, at Chimay as ' a very celebrated historiographer of his time'  who  'has written the wars and Chronicles, and the most remarkable events from the year 1335 until the year of 1400; and according as he himself relates in diverse parts of his history ".  This 1885  volume, " The Chronicles of England, France, Spain, and the adjoining countries,  from the latter part of the reign of Edward the second to the Coronation  Henry IV". records that   Froissart  stated " he had not the intention of making a dry chronicle wherein facts are simply related with their dates , and in the order they happened, but that  he was anxious to write what might be called in truth history , in which the events were presented with all the circumstances which had attended them."  Reading this work , some 600 years later,  the lasting brilliance of  his  description is surely proof of his success.
