Early manuscripts held in various NZ institutions, were dated from pre-printing times and produced, in the main, prior to 1500AD. Said to be the first NZ book on the topic and of particulat interest to students of " the classics, history, art, the Bible, Christain worship and the romance and poetry of the Renaissance," according to the book's front flap notes, which added that the general reader would enlarge their "vision of the culture of mediaeval Europe." The book opens with a table of manuscrips, identifying instutions or collections in Dunedin, Christchurch , Wellington and Auckland then holding examples of these early works, with textural descriptions of 77 individual items. This is a little used ex-Department of Education Library copy. First edition of 1955 published for the NZ Council For Educational Research (printed by Whitcombe and Tombs in NZ), 218 pages including six appendices (one illustrating watermarks) and index. Colour frontis shows an XV Century illuminated manuscript from the "Book oF Hours," 32 other b/w plates plus three pages watermarks. Blue hard covers have bumped corners, narrow fade band lower front edge/spine base, continued to rear board, few small light spots to front, small library code at spine base, fade mark to rear spine hinge extending 3cm into rear board near lower edge, library stamp top corner FFEP, frontis appears to have damp induced light undulations to lower margin area without impinging to the frontis illustration, small damp stain top centre, after the frontis the undulations are barely visible and disappear in a few pages, stamp with library codes title page verso, otherwise the textblock is VG+ with creased top corner pages167 - 170. All b/w plates are excellent, no stamps through text block. The book is tight in the covers and the rear internal hinge has been reinforced a brown paper strip. RFEP carries an unmarked "date due" sheet and a card pocket at rear pastedown contains two loan cards, also unmarked, small and unobtrusiev five numeral stamp to top corner. A battered copy of the original DJ with a vertical section missing close to the rear hinge is enclosed --- this damage is 1cm wide over about half the DJ depth, but is internal, not extending to the upper/lower edges.
