In the Footsteps of Richard Coeur De Lion
1912. With photogravure frontispiece and 33 other illustrations in halftone mostly from original photographs by Otto Holbach. The author recounts the history of Richard the Lionhearted with the perspective of having literally traced the footsteps he took on his travels to the Holy Land. Renowned as a Crusader and gallant knight, he spent all but six months of his reign outside of England campaigning or in captivity. Battle leader of the Third Crusade, Richard was shipwrecked near Venice on his return in 1192 and imprisoned by Duke Leopold of Austria.
