Celebrating the Past

Catalogue No. 14, 2018

Sixty Medieval Manuscripts

Folio, 364 pages, cloth-bound, more than 270 full-page colour illustrations, texts in English


This catalogue extols sixty medieval manuscripts, dating from the 10th to the 16th century, collected by Jörn Günther, and assembled in this compilation to celebrate his 60th birthday. Much more than simply sixty books, this work encompasses many more texts, the finest art, and a treasure trove of knowledge going back as far as the golden years of classical culture.
