London, Bibliographical Society / British Library, 2002
(24.5 cm), 132 pp., illustrations (some in colour). Publisher’s pictorial wrappers. - “A sourcebook and vade-mecum for comparing dated styles of borders with undated borders and for helping to estimate the period, at least to a quarter century and sometimes less, in which a late medieval English manuscript was produced and decorated. In some instances the handbook also provides a locale or probable locale in which the border originated” (publisher’s advertisement). A useful Glossary (pp.121-125). ¶ Very good, unmarked copy.
