This substantial catalogue is the final of a three-volume set that explores the medieval manuscripts of the McCarthy Collection, arguably the largest and most important private collection of illuminated cuttings, miniatures, and leaves in the world. Richly detailed and brimming with beautiful illustrations and historical insights, this is a welcome contribution to medieval scholarship. 

This volume focuses on illumination from France, featuring nearly one hundred works from a period covering the early twelfth century through the fifteenth. The wealth of French material in the collection is partly a reflection of Robert McCarthy’s own early interest in French Gothic art, inspired by his youthful visits to the Chartres Cathedral.
