Descripción The J. Paul Getty Museum in association with the British Library, London, first edition, 1994, 1994. Laminated wrappers, 8vo, 24 cm, 127,  pp, ills (some colour) From the introduction: "This guide is designed to provide information for the public, students, and professionals alike about the history of manuscript production and its study: the contexts of production and the people involved (contained in entries such as scribe, illuminator, master, workshop, stationer, patron, scriptorium, monastic production, and secular production); the physical processes and techniques employed (codicology); the types of text encountered (from liturgical volumes used in the performance of the mass and divine office and others, such as the book of hours, made for private devotions, to classical and medical texts as well as the romances and apocalypses commissioned by secular patrons); and the terminology applied to the elements, styles, and forms of illumination. Understanding Illuminated Manuscripts covers works made in the West from Antiquity until the early modern period and the establishment of printing, but reference is also made to later periods when relevant."
