Erik Inglis is a scholar of the first rate. This book is accessible to anyone with even a passing interest in medieval manuscripts; but more importantly, it is *rewarding* to anyone with an interest in art history in general. Inglis is a gifted teacher, and this comes through in each line of the writing; he knows how to communicate the importance of the material, even to an audience that may not know the finer points of medieval politics, illumination techniques, etc. If you have even a passing interest in this material, the sumptuous reproductions and scholarly acumen exhibited here should be more than enough to purchase this book.
