here provides a contrast to the many battle-scenes. On p. 211, Bersuire points to his version of the prologue, in contrast to the portrait on p. 285, where the inkwell and pen in his hand show him writing, rather than `explaining the text to the viewer' (as Manion suggests on p. 272). On p. 426, the inscription reads Codrus fecit se occidi (`to be killed'), not occidere as on p. 429. There are a few minimal errors, but throughout this section, Manion does well to look at each manuscript as a whole, discussing its origin, its later owners, its state of preservation, its art and its contents. The illuminations are only part of her analysis. This is certainly not a `coffee-table' book, despite the splendid reproductions of the coloured plates on almost every page, for which the publisher deserves high praise, but rather, it is an excellent display of art scholarship, well backed up by the useful footnotes at the end of each section, and by the bibliography.
