Voyage en Cotentin

Gilles de Gouberville (1521-1578), a perfect example of the country gentleman of the Renaissance, was both the lord of Mesnil-au-Val and of Gouberville, Lieutenant of the Eaux et Forêts in the Vicomté de Valognes and burger of Cherbourg. He is studied by historians all over the world because of the extraordinary richness of his Journal des mises et receptes drawn up in 1549 and 1562. This sensible book gives an account of the daily life of the Cotentin peninsula inhabitants in the middle of the 16th Century.
The illustrations made by Kévin Bazot plunge you into the Cotentin of the Renaissance in an extremely vivid and sensitive manner. On the base of solid, historic and archaeological documentation, this travel logbook enables one to immerge into the countryside, into the lives and the customs of this already distant period. Each of the twelve illustrations offered has its own detailed historic caption which gives a pleasant new vision of Gilles de Goubeville and his familiar universe.
