Complete and faithful facsimile reproduction of the original thirteenth century medieval manuscript held at Trinity College, Cambridge, sumptuously illustrated and written exclusively in the contemporary vernacular of Anglo Norman French. The largest of the thirteenth century apocalypses, and one of the earliest surviving English works of this type, it was the work of 4 artists and is widely held to be one of the finest of all manuscripts produced in England. Only the fourth facsimile of the volume, this recreation achieved unsurpassed standards of reproduction, and the accompanying volumes provide insights into the history and interpretation of the text.
