KIRKUS REVIEW

A comprehensive study by an eminent art historian of the Limbourg brothers, who illuminated the Belles Heures and the incomparable Tres Riches Heures of the Duc de Berry. The first volume places the works within the French humanist context of the 15th century and analyzes the structure of the Book of Hours; most of the plates in the second volume, reproduced in sequence, are black and white. Scholarly companion to the 1969 facsimile edition of the Tres Riches Heures, with catalogues, appendices of astronomical and calendrical data, textual notes, bibliography.
