This is a reference work that details the life and thoughts of Knights: their education and training; the stories they heard and read; the captains they followed and the men they led; but most importantly the complex chivalrous code they were sworn to.





 

At the age of 27 Pauline Baynes was producing illustrations for J.R.R Tolkien. He in turn recommended her to his friend, C.S Lewis. C.S Lewis commissioned Pauline to produce illustrations for The Narnia Chronicles. She is revered worldwide by sword-and-sorcery fans, who track her down via the internet. "I'm the only person left alive who was attached to C.S. Lewis and Tolkien ... I'm seen as the remnant who touched their garments."
