When this magnificent volume first appeared in 1966, it was celebrated for its extraordinary beauty. Now, more than thirty-five years since its first publication, it is made available once again. Illustrating one of the great art treasures of the world, The Hours of Catherine of Cleves is a fifteenth-century illuminated manuscript containing a series of some of the most beautiful illustrations of the Bible ever made. Many of the great scenes from the Old Testament and many more from the New Testament are included, along with the Stations of the Cross and portraits of the saints.
