This elegant book is full of excellent photos of medieval manuscripts from medieval Germany and Central Europe, which can be looked at in their own right without explanation.

This elegant book is full of excellent photos of medieval manuscripts from medieval Germany and Central Europe, which can be looked at in their own right without explanation. The long essay of explanation is meticulous in presenting the history and practice of illuminating manuscripts, making proper allowances for faith and religion, culture and sponsorship, liturgy and worship. The Getty Collection is obviously comprehensive and well balanced. Its origins are described usefully in the essay, as to how the items were obtained and brought to display.

See my review "French Illuminated Manuscripts" by Thomas Kern for my general comments on this excellent inexpensive introduction to Illuminated Manuscripts based on the Getty Museum's collection. This is another excellent addition
The collection is based on the Ludwig collection which the purchased in 1983
There are a number of important Illuminated Manuscripts in this volume. The author thinks "the Stammheim Missal" the greatest illuminated manuscript at the Getty and one of the greatest in any American collection
It covers manuscripts from the the of Charlemagne (Carolingian) to the 1600's.
There is a brief but excellent introduction where the author discusses the drawings.- this is the main focus of the text but he also briefly covers chronological terms, types of books such as Missals,Gospels Books,lectionaries etc as well as Patrons and centres of production.Often the complex language of the description of Illuminated Manuscripts overwhelms beginners- I think Kern has done a great job in trying to make these wonderful works of art accessible.
(There are a number of excellent books for the more advanced reader- these may well want this series as a useful guide to part of the Getty's holdings)
The illustrations of the illuminated manuscripts are in beautiful well reproduced colour and worth the cost of the book alone

This book is excellent for the person getting to know Illuminated Manuscripts
Others looking for a book with excellent colour illustrations will also like it as will calligraphers etc
Overall informative,well illustrated and excellent value for money
