Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is a lovingly assembled, essential A-Z companion to Dorothy Dunnetts brilliant Lymond Chronicles and the first five novels in the House of Niccolò series.

Elspeth Morrison has re-created the authors exhaustive original research, documenting her myriad sources and literary references. Foreign phrases are translated; poems and quotations presented in full; historical figures and events fleshed out; subtle allusions-and there are many-noted. From the origins of the Arabic drink qahveh to a recipe for quince paste, from the medical uses of ants and alum, to Zacco, Zenobia, and Zoroaster, this easy-to-use A-to-Z reference richly illuminates the intricacies of the complex and far-flung Renaissance world Dorothy Dunnetts creations so colorfully inhabit.

About the Author
