The library, which contained one of Europe's greatest collections of Illuminated Manuscripts was dispersed during the period of the Turkish conquest, and what remains of the priceless collection are now found in various parts of the world. This lavishly illustrated volume, faithfully reproduced in color throughout brings to life the glowing beauty of the originals."
