Book Description J. Paul Getty Museum in association with the British Library, Malibu, fifth printing, 1994, 1994. Book Condition: New. Laminated wrappers, 8vo, 24 cm, 127, [1] pp, 87 ills (56 in colour) From the blurb: " What is a breviary? What is an incipit? What is an antiphonal? This superbly illustrated book.offers definitions of the techniques, processes, and materials used in medieval illuminated manuscripts. Concise and readable explanations of the technical terms most frequently encountered by the museum-goer are presented in an easily portable format. With numerous illustrations drawn from the collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum and The British Library - many of them in color - this volume will be invaluable to all readers wishing to increase their enjoyment and understanding of illuminated manuscripts." From the introduction "This guide is designed to provide information for the public, students, and professionals alike about the history of manuscript production and its study: the contexts of production and the people involved (contained in entries such as Scribe, Illuminator, Master, Workshop, Stationer, Patron, Scriptorium, Monastic Production, and Secular Production); the physical processes and techniques employed (Codicology); the types of text encountered (from liturgical volumes used in the performance of the Mass and Divine Office and others, such as the Book of Hours, made for private devotions, to Classical and Medical Texts as well as the Romances and Apocalypses commissioned by secular patrons); and the terminology applied to the elements, styles, and forms of Illumination. Understanding Illuminated Manuscripts covers works made in the West from Antiquity until the early modern period and the establishment of printing, but reference is also made to later periods when relevant. The manuscript production of non-Western cultures could not be included, since such subjects as Hebrew and Islamic manuscripts are complex fields in their own right. However, important influences of non-Western cultures on the production of manuscripts in the West are cited in various entries." New. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-39284
