Wharncliffe Hours

£16.99

Product description

A fifteenth-century illuminated prayer book in the collection of The National Gallery of Vicoria Australia. This book reproduces 32 carpets and calendar pages from this original prayer book in colour and gold ink. This is a small size hardback book in a slipcase with the same design as the book itself.
The illuminations in this case prove to be particularly fine and include a full 12 month prayer calendar illuminated with the star signs and activities associated with that month and a selection of plates relating to the Hours Of The Virgin and other saints.
Each plate is accompanied by commentary explaining the story behind the painting. In this case each page of the manuscript has been reproduced with fine quality images highlighted by delicate gold ink in such a way that it enhances the images (like it should) rather than detracting from them with a heavy application of ink.
Red cloth binding book in a red cloth slipcase. Gilt titling on each. Gilt page edges. The book looks nearly new and is in really good condition inside and outside.
