9780905203010: Survey of Manuscripts Illuminated in the British Isles: Insular Manuscripts, 6th to the 9th Century v. 1 (A Survey of manuscripts illuminated in the British Isles)

English manuscript painting achieved great mastery during the period from 1280 to 1400 with the development of an intrinsically native style, exemplified by the East Anglian school, that flourished throughout London and the provinces during the 14th century. Although ecclesiastical and private devotional needs largely determined the style and type of book, courtly and aristocratic patronage provided French, Belgian, and Italian influences that are also evident in the manuscripts of this period. This catalogue and study of 158 Gothic manuscripts--some of them famous, and all outstanding masterpieces--demonstrates these links and developments in the illuminated style.

Descrizione libro Harvey Miller Publishers, London, first edition,1978, 1978. Cloth, folio, 34 cm, 219 pp, 380 ills, 8 colour plates. From the blurb: "This is the first volume to describe and illustrate all the most important illuminated Insular manuscripts since E. H. Zimmermann's Corpus publication of 1916; and because Insular manuscripts have been much studied since then, there are many corrections as well as additions to his work. The volume includes some of the earliest surviving books made in the British Isles, and traces the development of their decoration from small initiais and simple framing devices to the great carpet and initial pages for which the Book s of Durrow, Lindisfarne and Kells have become famous. Seventy-eight manuscripts are described, and these include all the most lavishly decorated, the majority of which are Gospel Books and Psalters. A number of Continental copies of Insular books, which no longer survive, are included to give a fuller picture, and there is also a selection of later books in which the decorative vocabulary developed in the 7th and 8th centuries is still being used three or four centuries later. The introduction briefly outlines the historical situation which lies behind the production of the manuscripts, the conversion of England to Christianity from Ireland and Rome, and then the Anglo-Saxon and Irish missions on the Continent. The illuminated manuscripts have sometimes been seen in nationalistic terms, opposing the achievements of Celts and Anglo- Saxons. It is suggested that a better understanding of the northern people's respective originality and inventiveness is obtained by examining the manuscripts in terms of their varying reaction to the alien, imported classical tradition from the Mediterranean. On this view, their originality lay in applying their skill in decoration and pattern-making to the embellishment of the book, often taking up earlier ideas, but enlarging on them and transforming them. Their development particularly of the initial as a vehicle of artistic expression, including probably the first use of the historiated initial, was to effect [sic] the history of book illumination for the rest of the Middle Ages." Faint traces of erased stamp on front free endpaper and of removed label at foot of spine, otherwise near Very Good. Codice libro della libreria ABE-41866
