Medieval knighthood and chivalry still hold a fascination for modern readers more than 500 years after the knights office was overtaken by the military officer and civil servant. Writing in the latter part of the 13th century, Ramon Lull penned what has become on of the most influential books on what it meant to be a knight. Originally written in Catalan, it was first translated into English in 1484 by William Caxton and printed as one of the first books in England.

Since the 15th century text has proven difficult for many students, this modernized edition by Brian R. Price strives to preserve as much of Caxtons language as posssible while upading the text as necessary to make this important work accessible to modern readers. As a bonus, the editors have included the anonymous Ordene de Chevalerie, translated into English by William Morris. Together, these works comprise two the three most important works on chivalry to survive from the Middle Ages.
