Illustrating his discussion with examples chosen from all over Europe, he discusses the social and historical context of the illuminators' lives, considers their methods of work, and shows the range and nature of the visual sources and the ways in which they were adapted, copied, or created anew. Illustrated with 218 black and white illustrations and 29 colorplates. A fine copy.
