”Siebenhirters breviarium” är daterat till mitten av 1460-talet. Det är ypperligt utsmyckat av en konstnär som kallas ”Lehrbüchermeister”, känd från ett flertal verk utförda för den tysk- romerska kejsaren Fredrik III och hans omgivning.

Beautiful manuscript leaf from a French (likely Paris) medieval Book of Hours beautifully illuminated on both sides in the fifteenth century (c. 1470).

Homilary This richly illuminated fourteenth-century German homilary is particularly interesting for its rare bifolium of drawings bound in at the front of the book, as early as circa 1320.

The Belles Heures of Jean de France, Duc de Berry, Paul, Herman, and Jean de Limbourg (Franco-Netherlandish, active in France, by 1399–1416). Completed by 1408 or 1409, probably in Paris, "The Belles Heures," a private devotional book, was the first of several sumptuous manuscripts commissioned by the duke of Berry from the Limbourg brothers. Using a luminous palette, the artists blended an intimate Northern vision of nature with Italianate modes of figural articulation.

Leaf from a Beatus Manuscript, the First Angel Sounds the Trumpet, c 1180. "Illustrated Beatus manuscripts bring to life an extraordinary vision of the end of the world, as recorded by Saint John in the Apocalypse (Book of Revelation) and filtered through the lens of Beatus of Liébana, an eighth-century Asturian monk. These manuscripts are unique to medieval Spain and a testament to the pervasive artistry and intellectual milieu of monastic culture there."
