The Hours of Catherine of Cleves (Morgan Library and Museum) sometimes called the Guennol Hours or the Arenberg Hours is an ornately illuminated manuscript in the Gothic art style, produced around AD 1440 by the anonymous Dutch artist known as the Master of Catherine of Cleves. It is one of the most lavishly illuminated manuscripts to survive from the 15th century. It has been described as one of the masterpieces of Northern European illumination. Braziller has done a remarkable job in producing this facsimile. A "must" for any Medievalist's library.

32 Morley, Christopher Parnassus on Wheels: Library Edition
Blackstone Audio 2000 0786192690 / 9780786192694 CD Very Good 
Audiobook on CD. Has been opened and played. Disc is free of scuffs or damage. No wear to insert; jewel case has faint signs of prior handling. Almost new.

Roger Mifflin is part pixie, part sage, part noble savage, and all God's creature. With his traveling book wagon named Parnassus, he moves through the New England countryside of 1915 on an itinerant mission of enlightenment. Mifflin's delight in books and authors is infectious--with his singular philosophy and bright eyes, he comes to represent the heart and soul of the book world. But a certain spirited spinster, disgruntled with her life, may have a hand in changing all that.

A charming story about books, book selling, and the people who love books.
