Publisher's Synopsis

As its custodian since 1970, Peter Brown, the Librarian of Trinity College, has come to know the book intimately. For this edition, he has chosen the most important of the large illustrations plus a series of enlargements showing the unbelievable minuteness of the detail - arabesques, interlaced patterns, weird and witty monsters and grotesqueries - a combination of high seriousness and bizarre humor that is as astonishing now as when the Book was written. 48 Color Illustrations.
