If you want to know about Philip the Good this is the way to go. A little dry, lots of politics, and even though it is an older publication, still the go to source for info on Philip. Great excerpts from letters and correspondence which give a nice glimpse into his life.
This is a landmark study of Philip the Good. The 2002 edition includes a new introduction with a bibliographic survey of research since the original publication (1970).
