From the Foreword to the catalogue: "Although her main interest was book collecting, she nevertheless managed to assemble a small, but select collection containing some quite remarkable manuscripts... Every aspect of medieval manuscript production is represented, from fine examples of early German monastic books to late Renaissance calligraphic works and the remarkable cut-work book for Anne of Austria. The dominant theme of the collection is religious, but in each category the choices were obviously careful and remarkably judicious..."
