Modern quarter vellum and marbled-paper boards, black spine-label, folio, 41 cm xix, 341 pp, 34 plates. 135 entries. This catalogue is normally seen as a 2-volume work with Volume I containing the text and Volume II containing 128 plates by Emery Walker. Our copy is a single volume comprising the text, extra-illustrated with 34 of the 128 plates. From the introduction: "As [the manuscripts catalogued here] were acquired mainly for their artistic interest without any particular regard to the nature of their literary contents, in dealing with the collection they have been distributed chronologically in sections according to the country of their origin, English manuscripts being placed first and Byzantine and Oriental manuscripts at the end. All productions of the same national school are thus brought together both in the text and plates and, so far as the limited number of examples will permit, the art of book-decoration as it was developed in different countries may be studied to more advantage than under any other arrangement A glance at the table of contents of the eleven sections will show how wide a range the collection covers. Naturally the English, French, Italian, and Flemish schools are most strongly represented, but highly characteristic, if less numerous, examples of the Dutch, Spanish, German, Bohemian, and Swiss schools together with three Byzantine Gospels, a curious little Armenian Hymnary, and three other superlatively fine Oriental manuscripts, are also included, while the range in date extends from a 9th century French Evangeliarium in gold characters to a 17th century Koran." Name (G R C Davis, of the British Museum) and date on front free endpaper, otherwise Near Fine. N° de ref. de la librería ABE-15273
