ASCH, Ronald G. and Adolf M. BIRKE, (eds.). Princes, Patronage, and the Nobility : The Court at the Beginning of the Modern Age, c. 1450-1650. London and Oxford : The German Historical Institute, London, 1991. First Edition. Pp (4),[v]-xii,1-507,(1). 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. In the Studies of the German Historical Institute, London series. "This book dealswith the court as a crucial center of government and politics, and as the dominant focus for the ruling elites. Princes, Patronage, and the Nobility shows how the early modern court gradually developed from the medieval royal household, and how it functioned in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Comparing England, Germany, France, Spain as well as the Netherlands and Italy, the editors find that several common themes emerge: the problem ofintegrating a number of often vastly different provinces and principalitie s through the attraction of a court; the capital city's function as the basis of the court and as its rival; the role of the Court during the great religious conflicts of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries; and the courtas an instrument for domesticating the nobility and a stronghold of aristo cratic influence." - from the dj. 1.
