Is there anywhere that I can buy a copy of the Maciejowski Bible, similar to Christian Tobler's In Service of the Duke? I'm not interested in the translation, just the pictures, if that helps....

There is an older out-of-print book that can still be acquired on the used market:

Old Testament Miniatures: A Medieval Picture Book With 283 Paintings from the Creation to the Story of David by Sydney Carlyle Cockerell, John Plummer

It's huge. I love my copy. It often lists for $75+ but can be found cheaper.

There was also a limited printing done years ago that is much more rare and expensive but is leather bound and in a slipcase. When you can find a copy, it may be over $2,000.

Happy

Thanks Chad, that's precisely what I was looking for.

I discovered in my library a very nice facsimile of the Bible, although, according to the Library of Congress, it is called
Title: Die Kreuzritterbibel = The Morgan Crusader Bible = La Bible des croisades.
Parallel title: Morgan Crusader Bible
Parallel title: Bible des croisades.

A copy of this facsimile, which is of amazing quality, may be on the market. I have no idea of it's value. But, I do work with illuminated manuscripts, and I can attest this is a nice facsimile. If you want to see if your local libraries have a copy, here is the Library of Congress info to help you search.

Library of Congress call number: ND3355.5 .P54 K74
and ND3355.5 .P54 K74 Commentary

Thanks for the heads-up, but I ended up buying the copy that Chad suggested, and it's in excellent condition. I'm so glad to have it!

I'm glad you found a copy. I find the images more powerful when seen as a book. I have really enjoyed looking at it.

Maybe this has been posted elsewhere (but I didn't find it in a search). There are 86 pages of the Maciejowski/Morgan Bible online here, in *very* high resolution. I highly recommend finding the full screen button (at the bottom of the viewer).

This is brilliant! This is an amazing resource for people all over. The detail in the close-up is amazing. Definitely something that I'll be referring to often.

Thank you for posting!
