1 Gill, D.M. Illuminated Manuscripts
London Brockhampton Press 1996 1860191150 / 9781860191152 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy in pictorial laminated boards with Fine dustjacket. Books were made by hand in Western Europe for a thousand years, from the earliest days of Christianity - when monks wrote and decorated Bibles for the glory of God in their wind-swept monasteries at the far margins of the known world - to the high Renaissance, when the world was at Europe's feet, and the printing press enabled Martin Luther and other agents of the Reformation to split Europe into opposing camps within one generation. Generations of artists and cultures influenced the art of the illuminated manuscripts and are among the world's greatest masterpieces. This fascinating and exquisitely illustrated book examines the decorative techniques which captured some of the most important chronicles of history.
