Published in conjunction with an exhibit of the same name mounted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, November 1994 to February 1995. Four extended essays explore several aspects of illuminated books by five generations of artists in Florence. The catalogue section includes 55 entries on 110 works of art, accompanied by 296 illustrations, about half in color; each entry includes a descriptive commentary, a provenance, and references. Because many illuminated books were cut apart and disseminated into different collections, a goal of the exhibition was to reconstruct disassembled books, in some cases for the first time. 10x12" Annotation copyright Book News, Inc.
