Hardcover in Fine condition with Near Fine dustwrapper. First English edition (printed same year as German edition), pp 144, colour illustration, end notes, bibliography, index. 'The Bedford Hours', one of the most sumptuous Books of Hours ever to have left an illuminator's workshop, is today one of the British Library's greatest treasures. With 1250 elaborate medallions, 38 large-scale miniatures, all decorated with gold leaf, brush gold and frequently also with silver, 'The Bedford Hours' is one of the most precious manuscripts of its period. The artist behind the manuscript, known as the Bedford Master, was among the most prolific painters of his day but his identity has remained a mystery. Eberhard Konig's engrossing account is a tale which unfolds toward a number of startlingly original and unexpected conclusions, the key one being that it is extremely likely that he was Haincelin of Haguenau, an artist who had become enlumineur (illuminator) to the dauphin Louis de Guyenne. THE PACKED WEIGHT OF THIS BOOK IS OVER 1KG, SO FOR UK FIRST CLASS AND INTERNATIONAL, ADDITIONAL POSTAGE COSTS WILL BE REQUIRED.
