Abstract:

"Cambridge is the depository of one of the greatest collections of illuminated manuscripts in the world. The present volume is published to accompany the exhibition of some two hundred spectacular Cambridge treasures - from the Fitzwilliam Museum, the Cambridge University Library, and the individual College libraries - covering a unique array of outstanding but rarely seen illuminated books." "The Catalogue spans over ten centuries of book production, from the significant sixth-century Gospels of St. Augustine, to the great Romanesque Bibles such as the Bury and Dover Bibles, the exquisite and emotive devotional books of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, up to the refined, classical elegance of the Humanist books of early Renaissance Italy. Manuscripts are grouped thematically under eight headings. The catalogue entries as well as the introductory essays to each section are by well-known authorities in their field, among them the editors Paul Binski and Stella Panayotova, and Jonathan Alexander, Christopher de Hamel, Rosamond McKitterick, Nigel Morgan and Teresa Webber." "All manuscripts catalogued are illustrated in full colour, and there is a Glossary, exhaustive Bibliography, and detailed Index."--Book jacket.
