First Edition  


A very nice bright copy of this first edition in its original dust-wrapper. Very clean and tight. Used; Very Good "When I was 15, I borrowed... from the school library a copy of Norman Cohn's The Pursuit of the Millennium. I'd never gone abroad, but Cohn's tightly printed pages sang of an exotic European world. This was a history book – of the best kind. Investigating the Millenarian fantasies of the Middle Ages, Cohn uncovered a landscape where emotion and attitude were more powerful than high politics. I devoured the tales of flagellants and choreomaniacs, who whipped or sang themselves into frenzies of eschatological expectation" (Bettany Hughes 2010)
Price: £30.00
