    2. After purchasing and perusing Introduction to Manuscript Studies by Raymond Clemens and Timothy Graham, I purchased the book under review, Christopher De Hamel's A History of Illuminated Manuscripts. The former book is wonderful and prepared me for De Hamel's, but De Hamel is so thorough that he includes much of the same information that is in the book by Clemens and Graham.

Some of the 'snippets' I felt could have had more surrounding them but on the whole a joyous volume.
