"The present volume is the first of three charting the McCarthy Collection of manuscript fragments (consisting of leaves and cuttings). . . . The commentary is discursive, well written, and not overly long. . . . [It is] magnificent in terms of production values, as we have come to expect from Paul Holberton Publishing and its imprints. The book is a pleasure to peruse . . . and is as much a testament to the learning of its authors as it is to the discernment of the collector."

Fragmentology: A Journal for the Study of Medieval Manuscript Fragments

"The McCarthy collection volume is an invaluable addition to the field of Italian and Byzantine manuscript studies."

Manuscript Studies

"The McCarthy Collection ... deserves to be better known, as it certainly will be following the publication of this luxurious and extensively illustrated three-volume catalogue. Not limited to a single period or country, the collection offers a panorama of European illumination from the ninth century to the fifteenth ... These catalogues are an important addition not just to field of fragmentology, but to manuscript studies as a whole and will form an invaluable jumping off point to further research."
