Medieval book

0

This book was presented on the occasion of Christopher de Hamels sixtieth birthday, and celebrates his many accomplishments during his years at Sothebys and more recently as the Gaylord Donnelley Fellow Librarian of the Parker Library at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. Christopher de Hamel has described more medieval manuscripts than any other living scholar, and the sale catalogues that have come from his hands set new standards of quality and stimulated new generations of collectors, both institutional and private. This book is a tribute to his learning, his industry, imagination, spirit and good fellowship and his capacity to inspire others. Among the contributors are collectors, colleagues, librarians, curators, students of book history and scholars.
The contributions are divided under the rubrics:
