Abstract

The present catalogue comprises detailed descriptions of approx. 90 illuminated manuscripts and early printed books from the collection of the Upper Austrian State Library in Linz. It focuses on the art-historical classification of the presented items for which the in-depth analysis of the books’ and fragments’ decorations constitutes the main basis. Through its many findings on the origin of the described works the catalogue can be regarded as a major contribution to the research on book-illumination and book-production in the late Middle Ages; furthermore it provides the reader with a large number of newly discovered historical data.

Abstract

The essays in this volume present art historical methods for research on the conditions in which books were produced and decorated in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Period. The consideration of the multiple factors impacting on the production and dissemination of illustrated books serves to improve our understanding of the works and helps to place them more accurately in the cultural discourse of their time.
