This volume brings together five essays written in homage to Professor R. J. Knecht on the occasion of his eightieth birthday.1 The contributors have all, in their various ways, enjoyed and benefited over many years from Professor Knecht's support, advice, patronage and friendship, as too has the Society for the Study of French History (of which he was one of the founding members and former president) and its associated journal French History. A commemoration of the meeting which created the Society - Twenty Years On - can be found later in this volume. Yet the essays here, by British historians of early modern France, represent the recognition of only a small group of those who might pay tribute to Bob (as his friends and colleagues know him). In France, in particular, but also North America, he has forged a wide circle of friendships with fellow historians, art historians and literary scholars in the field of early modern French studies, both from his own and later generations, as reflected in the postscript to this volume by Denis Crouzet.
