21 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 1,632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The letters sent from Asia Minor, Syria and Palestine in the High Middle Ages come closest to recording the real feelings of those who lived in and visited the crusader states.

De nugis curialium = Courtiers' trifles by Walter Map( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in French and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Map was a twelfth-century courtier and royal servant. He was a prolific writer, but De Nugis Curialium ('Courtiers' Trifles') is the only surviving work confidently attributed to him. The book is a collection of short stories and anecdotes about the court, religion and history. Map's references demonstrate that he read widely, not only biblical and theological works, but also classical authors such as Horace, Virgil, Ovid and Juvenal. The only surviving manuscript of the work is a fourteenth-century copy once belonging to the monk John Wells of Ramsey Abbey. The Cambridge bibliographer M. R. James would have been attracted to the breadth of Map's referencing, and the author's light-hearted writing style which was intended to entertain. James' 1914 Oxford publication corrected the earlier work of Thomas Wright who published an edition for the Camden Society in 1850

Caffaro, Genoa and the twelfth-century crusades by Caffarus( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Caffaro’s two other texts are exclusively about the crusades: ‘The Liberation of the Cities of the East’ and ‘The Capture of Almería and Tortosa’, while associated with him but of a later date is the ‘Short History of Jerusalem’. Alongside these narratives are a number of charters and letters that relate to, and complement, the main texts. These relate to matters such as Genoese privileges in the Holy Land and form a valuable resource in their own right. Placed alongside Caffaro’s narratives they can show the blend of commercial energy, civic pride and religious conviction that were the basis of Genoese activity in the complex world of the medieval Mediterranean"--
