Item Description: Phaidon, Oxford, first edition, 1986, 1986. Cloth, 4to, 29 cm, 256 pp, 250 ills, 80 in colour. From the blurb: "Illuminated manuscripts are among the greatest glories of medieval art. They survive in large numbers and have immense popular appeal. Reproductions of miniatures and decorated pages are to be found everywhere, from greeting cards and wrapping paper to expensive facsimiles, and yet hitherto no history of this vast subject has been readily available. Christopher de Hamel's book fulfils a longfelt need for a general introduction to the whole subject of the making of books in the Middle Ages. Books were written and illuminated for particular purposes, and the author concentrates our attention on the types of book that were most characteristic of different epochs, beginning with the early Christian missionaries of Ireland and Northumbria, and culminating in Renaissance Italy. He vividly describes the 'widely varying circumstances in which books were created - monks copying devotional works in their scriptoria, commercial booksellers in Paris producing textbooks for university students, celebrated artists painting exquisite miniatures for aristocratic patrons, humanists searching out and transcribing ancient manuscripts of classical authors As the story unfolds, the amazing variety of medieval manuscripts and their illumination is put into a historical context, and the gradual shift from purely religious to a wide range of secular interests is traced. At every stage the fundamental questions about book' production are answered - who wrote the books, who read them, who paid for them, how they were actually made, what texts they contained, what purposes they served, and how their lavish decoration originated and developed. The illustrations, many of them fullpage colour plates, reveal not only the sheer beauty but also the remarkable range of types of medieval manuscript. They have been carefully chosen to show the development of style in script, illumination and book design, and in the captions many of the telltale clues are pointed out that help to identify and date manuscripts, and even ascribe them to their place of origin. In A History of Illuminated Manuscripts Christopher de Hamel has brought together a vast amount of information that was previously accessible only to specialists." Somewhat faded around the spine, otherwise Very Good in a similarly spine-faded dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-43824
