The new year comes with fresh and exciting news in the world of facsimiles! Just a few days ago the facsimile edition of one of the most interesting manuscripts of travel literature was announced: it’s the Travels of Jean de Mandeville.
The Book of Hours of Louis de Laval is an extraordinary example of XV Century French illumination: a result of the partnership between Jean Colombe and the workshop of Jean Fouquet.
A mystery surrounds the identity of the illuminator of this incredible manuscript, which contains a collection of prayers for special occasions.
The Codex Rotundus is a very peculiar Book of Hours in Latin and French unique for form and size: extremely small but also extremely precious.
