This collection of literature attempts to compile many of the classic works that have stood the test of time and offer them at a reduced, affordable price, in an attractive volume so that everyone can enjoy them.
This series provides a survey of book illumination in the British Isles. Every volume contains an introductory text and a catalogue with detailed discussion and description of the format, style, colour contents and provenance of each manuscript, with full bibliographical references. In addition, each volume includes a corpus of illustrations, so that every manuscript catalogued can be referred to visually. This volume should be valuable as an up-to-date survey of the best known manuscripts of the period, such as the illustrated apocalypses, the Oscott Psalter, the Life of Edward the Confessor or the work of the "Sarum Master"- it is also able to set these against an exploration of many of their less well known contemporaries.
