Description: Pierre Salmon served as royal secretary to Charles VI of France at a time when papal schism plagued the church, civil war divided the country, and the king suffered from an intermittent but incapacitating psychosis. In an effort to find a cure for the king's illness, stabilize the turbulent political situation, and secure his own future, Salmon supervised the production of two distinct versions of the beautifully illuminated guidebooks to good kingship known as his Dialogues.

Where much previous scholarship has relied on an abridged edition of the Dialogues, Anne D. Hedeman returns to the complete, original manuscripts to present a fresh view of Salmon's purposes. The first version, she suggests, held out hope for the king's complete recovery and so counseled him on ruling wisely. The second version, reflecting a changed political situation and a failure to find a cure for the king, expands its audience to include the future governors of France. A treat for the eye as well as the intellect, this volume is illustrated with illuminations from the manuscripts, including nine color plates.
