Coming face to face with an important illuminated manuscript in the original is rather like meeting a very famous person. There is an undeniable thrill in actually meeting and talking to a person of world stature. This book is an intimate conversation with a selection of the most famous manuscripts in existence, letting each of those manuscripts illuminate the Middle Ages and sometimes the modern world too. Meetings with Remarkable Manuscripts invites the reader to accompany the author on exclusive private visits to a dozen very varied collections, in different parts of the world, to discover twelve great manuscripts and to explore their historical and intellectual significance.
