Description & Technical information
Thirteenth-century pocket Bibles were one of the great achievements of thirteenth-century book-making. This is a luxurious book, with tiny painted initials before all the prologues and biblical books; the workmanship is exquisite throughout, and certainly places the book apart from many of the more everyday examples of Bibles of this type. A very fine example of a manuscript illuminated by a professional artist working in Paris, the most important center for the making of illuminated manuscripts in this period.
