There is also great chronological diversity among the selected manuscripts, with examples ranging from the seventh century AD and the Lindisfarne Gospels to early Renaissance offerings. Each of the almost 220 illuminations presented are accompanied by a caption and have been reproduced in colour. Most of the images chosen have been reproduced here for the first time. This new survey features some 220 full-colour illuminations from the world's finest collection of medieval manuscripts."
