The collection of over 500 medieval and Renaissance manuscripts at the Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore is one of the finest in America. Never before thoroughly cataloged, this extraordinarily rich collection of illuminated codices and leaves includes Bibles, liturgical texts, didactic tracts, chronicles, romances, and an abundance of books for private devotion. In the third of the projected four-volume catalog of these holdings at the Walters, the focus is on Southern Netherlandish manuscripts, most of which originated in Belgium. To be published next are examples of Austrian, Bohemian, Dutch, English, German, Italian, and Spanish manuscript production between the ninth and sixteenth centuries. Praise for previous volumes: "An admirably equipped research tool, striking a judicious balance between codicology and art history and supplying the reader with concordances, an index of incipits, etc. The entries are of varying length, and their leisurely pace yields rich pickings." -- Paul Binski, Speculum "Students and scholars alike will be greatly indebted to the author for this magnificent volume." -- Manuscripta
