The victory of Charles V (1364-1380) against the English, and against his own feudal nobility, marked the beginning of a golden age in the history of book illumination. Around the turn of the 15th century, magnificent examples emerged from scriptoria all over Europe, especially in France, setting new standards for fine illumination, in particular those produced through the patronage of Charles' brother. Jean, Duke of Berry, whose interest in fine books earned him a reputation as the "prince of medieval bibliophiles." This volume, with 40 exquisite color plates, reproduces pages from Jean's treasured volumes, including The Belles Heures, The Grandes Heures, and the jewel of his collection, The Très Riches Heures, together with folios from illuminated secular books.
