Written and illuminated in the early 14th century for Sir Geoffrey Luttrell of Irnham in Lincolnshire, The Luttrell Psalter is celebrated for its long series of attractive marginal illustrations showing scenes of rural life in medieval England. Here Janet Backhouse describes the manuscript's creation and history, illustrated with 40 colour and 20 black-and-white photographs reproduced from the original. This is the second volume in a series of high-quality, colour-illustrated books, each devoted to a single illuminated manuscript in The British Library's collections. Janet Backhouse is the author of many books, including "Books of Hours" (1985), "The Illuminated Manuscript" (1979), "The Lindisfarne Gospels" (1981), and "The Becket Leaves" (1988).
