This book provides an overview of the ninety finest and most interesting medieval French manuscripts that are currently in Dutch collections.

Besides their superb artisitic qualities, the painted images in these handwritten books provide a richly varied picture of medieval life. The emphasis is on the role that books played in medieval society as prayerbooks for monks, textbooks at university, expressions of pomp for the aristocracy and cherished objects for personal devotion for the devout.

The book is richly illustrated with 180 colour plates, each one accompanied by an explanatory description.
