Buch-Reprint "The Landgrave Psalter"

This magnificent manuscript of early Gothic book illustration was commissioned by Landgrave Hermann I of Thuringia for his second wife, Sophie. All initials are set off as golden majuscules, which are enriched by foliate drawings. Some psalms are highlighted by intricately intertwined initials, often reaching almost half a page size. In addition to this extremely different initial decoration, it is also the ornate calendar pages and full-page miniatures, which give the Landgrave Psalter its splendor and preciousness. 384 pages, 127 pages comment. Format 19.5 x 15 cm (H / W).
