This listing is marked SOLD and is no longer available

Up for sale is a copy of Old Testament Miniatures, a facsimile of the famed Maciejowski Bible. This is one of the wonderful period art facsimiles put out by the publisher George Braziller. It is a huge book (16 x 12 x 1.3 or so) and shows the work in its entirety and at full size with commentary by Sir Sydney Cockerell. It includes the leaves in the Pierpont Morgan library plus the separated leaves in the Bibliotheque Nationale in France and from the Getty in Los Angeles.

Those who've been in this hobby a while know the importance of this work. It's a series of illustrated Bible stories done in the mid 13th century. Clothing and arms and armour largely reflect that period (except when the illustrators try very hard to make something look old by depicting it slightly out of date). It's a great book and great look at mid-13th century life.

This book doesn't say when it was printed, but I'd guess late 60s/early 70s when so many of these Braziller works were published. This copy is in pretty good shape, especially given its age and size. The book itself is clean and unmarked and the binding looks great for such a large and heavy book. The dust jacket has small tears around the edges plus the larger one visible on the back cover.

Copies of this book are often listed up to $100 and more. Asking $67 + s/h. Money order accepted, PayPal preferred (please add 3% of total for PayPal).
