Precious Manuscripts, Books & Prints

The manuscripts, prints and books on offer tell an enchanting story. These fascinating items stand out with their astoundingly good state of preservation and decorative character. A monumental crucifixion miniature, which was produced in a master?s atelier in Rouen in 1520, makes for an exceptional example of the craftsmanship of medieval illuminations. A Venetian incunable in a late-gothic chain binding clarifies the highly developed bookbinding craft of the late middle ages. Museum-quality handwritten and printed parchments and handmade paper make for fascinating collector?s items of enduring value and rarity.
