Description
This catalog illustrates and describes a collection of lesser-known treasures in Philadelphia's numerous museums, libraries, and other public holdings: 80 illuminated manuscripts, as well as individual leaves and cuttings from handmade and decorated books. The works of manuscript centers of medieval and Renaissance Europe are represented with bibles, psalters, a wide variety of liturgical manuscripts and texts, including a Book of Hours once owned by the Earl of Pembroke and an elegantly illustrated copy of Saint Augustine's City of God. With their jewel-like colors, intimate scale, and often whimsical marginalia, these illuminated manuscripts form an especially engaging view into the past.
