The British Library houses the largest and most comprehensive collection of Western illuminated manuscripts in the world. This book offers an anthology in colour chosen from more than two hundred of them. So very comprehensive are the British Library collections that the majority of the most significant schools of illumination in medieval Europe can be represented. Furthermore, most of the manuscripts contain dozens, if not hundreds, of images, only visible to those who have the privilege of turning their delicate pages.
