Gallantry : dizain des fêtes galantes by James Branch Cabell( Book )
30 editions published between 1906 and 2010 in English and held by 537 libraries worldwide
American writer James Branch Cabell carved out a literary niche of his own with a body of work that combines fantasy, humor, and allegory. The novel Gallantry succeeds marvelously on all three levels. In terms of plot, it's a rollicking action-adventure quest story that fans of fiction set in the medieval era will relish. Thematically, it's a clever send-up of the very notion of gallantry and all of the harm wrought by this complex social code
