About this Item

A fascinating look at what was, and remains, a neglected area of Medieval decorative arts. 4to. 26 by 20 cm. 327 pp. Red over the cream paper illustrations on most pages -- well over 225 illustrations. Most pages with two tile specimens and a caption, sometimes long, explaining where the specimen is located and occasionally more background about the specimen. The specimens show the wide range of Medieval or Gothic creativity, all the time while working within some conventions. Also examples of lettering, which may be a topic of particular interest. The paper used in the book was a luxuriant stock with a high linen count. The cloth on the boards has moderate soiling. Foxing on the endpapers. A few minor rub spots on the leather. Nonetheless, this is a very handsome copy which overall we would consider near fine. Bookseller Inventory # 004331

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
