KIRKUS REVIEW

The Codex Aureus Epternacensis, an illuminated manuscript of the 10th century by a Benedictine monk which lay for 800 years in the Imperial Abbey of Echternach and is now in the Germanisches National-Museum, is here reproduced in an outstandingly beautiful volume. Dr. Metz has contributed a text explaining the idea behind the Codex, its design, and notes on the plates of which there are 13 in subtle and sumptuous color, 97 in halftones. It is a book for the special library or collector of ecclesiastical art.
