Synopsis :

Book by Bologna Giulia

Présentation de l'éditeur:

These materials, for some sections abundant almost to excess, are for others scanty, and sometimes fail altogether; so that it is no easy task to make them tell an orderly, consecutive, and well-proportioned story. The question of proportion is always a difficult one for the author of a compendium; and I must admit that exception might be taken to my allotting so much more space to a few Classical and Early Christian manuscripts than to the vast bulk of French fifteenth century work. My defence is that the student of illumination, for whose guidance this book is intended, is sure to be already familiar with examples of the later work, and to need little more than a few hints as to what is best in it; so that a much greater degree of compression is permissible and desirable here than in discussing the earlier manuscripts, which are rare, little known, and difficult of access, yet have vital significance as marking stages in the development of the art.
