"The present survey covers the very large body of material that survives from the intensely creative Romanesque period [of French manuscript illumination] . In his selection, Professor Cahn discusses not only the high points of the illuminator's art, but has been specially concerned to exemplify the range and variety produced in the 12th century. Indeed this manuscript art enriched not only the lavish and precious liturgical books of which the great Bibles are outstanding examples, but also lives of saints, illustrated cartularies and books of canon law, as well as literary and historical writings. 152 manuscripts from this period are here catalogued and illustrated. The Catalogue gives detailed information about format, style and iconography, contents, provenance and literature for each manuscript, and is particularly valuable for the descriptions of the artists and scribes (some paid, itinerant, and becoming increasingly professional) who were of exceptional calibre; the types and styles of the work they undertook are also analysed. The corpus of illustrations complements the Catalogue and provides a much needed visual conspectus of French Romanesque book illumination. In the course of his Introduction and Catalogue, Professor Cahn discusses patronage as well as the impetus for the production of these outstanding manuscripts. " - from the blurb.
