Description

Facsimile edition of the original manuscript of the thirteenth century known as the Apocalypse of Paris, because it is preserved in the National Library of France (number Ms. Français 403).

The date of execution of this manuscript is around the year 1250 and probably transmits the oldest Commentary on the Island Apocalypse. The codex is made in parchment and illustrated with 90 miniatures of exceptional quality that are attributed to an excellent illuminator of the time, known as the Master of Sarum, Latin place name that today corresponds to the name of Salisbury. In fact, this work testifies to the most refined creativity of the artistic movement that triumphed in the British Isles in the mid-thirteenth century.

The last book that closes the Bible has been a conflictive work since the first centuries of Christianity. It is particularly interesting to compare the creation of Beato with this work of similar characteristics in terms of its general planning, but produced in a different cultural environment for geographical, artistic and chronological reasons.

Facsimile made in 2013, bound in embossed leather on board and stamped in gold, collected, folded and sewn by hand. Format 23.5 x 33.5 cm. 92 pages miniada on special paper in parchment aged, text in two columns, gothic letter insular libraría. Presented in an elegant book-type case for better conservation.

Accompanied by the corresponding historical, artistic and paleographic study by Dr. Elisa Ruiz.

Single edition of 550 copies, numbered and authenticated by notarial deed.

Exemplary complete and in perfect condition.
