Product description

Review

"General readers will find [the book] interesting and understandable as the manuscript is so engaging and attractive. This is the sort of book one might acquire at the museum shop after seeing the Psalter on display. It definitely answers any questions one might have about this beautiful book; and the illustrations allow one to see the imaginative illuminations again and again."--Jack Edson "Catholic Library World "

Synopsis

The Luttrell Psalter is one of the British Library's supreme treasures. It has more than 600 pages and the delicate task of recreating this masterpiece of English medieval art so accurately into a complete full size facsimile edition has taken well over a year to achieve. Every stage of the production process has been subjected to the greatest attention to detail, from reproducing the subtle effect of fine worked gold and silver that decorate the pages of the manuscript, to finding a modern paper which matches the weight and feel of the original animal skin vellum pages. This is a huge book in every sense: it measures over 7 cm in depth (and 36 cm long by 24.5 cm wide), and weighs just over 5 kilos. Very few people before have had the chance to turn and admire these wonderful pages; now it is open to everyone to do so in the comfort and leisure of their own home. This is a rare opportunity to own a superlative facsimile of one of the greatest medieval manuscripts anywhere in the world, and we anticipate demand to be high. The volume also contains a 64-page scholarly commentary by leading medieval manuscripts expert Michelle P.

Brown, which details the history of the manuscript and includes a folio-by-folio description.
