Book Description George Braziller, Inc., New York, 1989. Large Softcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Printing. First printing of revised paperback edition. 224 pp. From the flap: 'Cited as 'one of the miracles of art history' by Kenneth Clark, the Tres Riches Heures is the most luxurious and most famous of such books and marks the zenith of manuscript illumination in late medieval Europe. Commissioned by the influential patron, Jean de Berry, in the early years of the fifteenth century, this masterpiece was executed by the three Limbourg brothers, the greatest miniaturists of the time. The manuscript opens with a calendar illustrating scenes of daily life during the twelve months and is followed by the prayers of offices celebrated at different times of the day. These texts are often accompanied by miniatures, in which the artists' imaginative and decorative genius are fully revealed. The personal approach of the Limbourgs to nature, human activity, and beauty represents the transition from medieval attitudes to those of the Renaissance. Their elegant images, in fact, were to influence the course of painting in France and all of northern Europe. This edition reproduces each of the miniatures in the Tres Riches Heures in full color and to exact scale. With 139 color plates.'Keywords: FINE ART HISTORY ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPTS ILLUMINATIONS INCUNABULA INCUNABLES MEDIEVAL EUROPE EUROPEAN PRINT JEAN DE BERRY. Bookseller Inventory # 2041018
