This book takes us right to the heart of medieval book illumination and presents 167 of the most beautiful, most important, and probably most famous illuminated manuscripts from A.D. 400 to 1600. No comparable survey of the finest codices from twelve centuries previously has been attempted. Even though this compilation focuses mainly on Europe, no less than twenty-three codices from Persia, Turkey, and India bear witness to the flowering of Oriental manuscript illumination.
