Description du livre État : New. Discoveries of real treasures are exceptionally rare. The Macclesfield Psalter (c1335), a jewel of manuscript painting, was unknown before its sale in 2004; it came to international attention and is now recognised as the most important discovery of a medieval manuscript in Britain within living memory. Its pages offer an intimate view of the medieval world and the beliefs, prejudices, follies, aspirations and sentiments of its people. Doctors, priests, minstrels, mummers, farmers, dancers, tricksters and beggars mingle in the margins, as they would have done on the streets of a busy town. Panayotova shares her intimate knowledge of the Psalter and its historical context in an extended commentary, which unfolds an engrossing quest for the provenance of the manuscript and an account of its contents and meaning. Beautifully presented in a cloth-covered slipcase, this delight to the eye and challenge to the mind is supplemented by a host of details from related sacred books. The chance to peep into the jewelled intricacy of images that act like a spyhole on the medieval imagination. THE TIMES. N° de réf. du libraire 1518
