Date of publication



Chromolithograph plates by Noel Humphreys were first published in William Smith's edition of 1844-45. Thomas Johnes' translation of Froissart was first issued by his own private publishing venture, the Hafod Press, in 1803-05 and, remarkably, he "remains the only man to have undertaken the formiddable task of translating Froissart's Chronicles in their entirety, and the appearance of subsequent editions until 1906 testifies to their worth."
