Product Description

In the Middle Ages a breviary was an illuminated manuscript daily devotions commissioned by only the wealthiest and most powerful. Today, The Overlook Press is making the legendary Grimani Breviary available to all.

While the original Grimani Breviary is safely housed in the Biblioteca Marciana in Venice, this linen-bound, facsimile edition captures all of the beauty and enchantment of this ancient manuscript. The pages are filled with full-color images of prayers and daily life in the early 16th century painstakingly drawn by the Flemish miniaturist painter Gerard Horenbout and his collaborators.
