Z opisu na stronie:

Welcome to the Online Catalogue of Illuminated Manuscripts, a searchable database of some of the western illuminated manuscripts in the British Library. The Library holds one of the richest collections of medieval and renaissance manuscripts in the world, and aims to provide access to images and information about its manuscripts to students, scholars, and the general public.

The Catalogue includes descriptions and images of western manuscripts with pictorial and decorative embellishments, from fully painted miniatures to decorated initials. Because it includes such a wide range of material, it serves as a useful resource for those working in a variety of disciplines. In order to maximize the number of images, the Catalogue includes digital scans of existing slides as well newly-commissioned digital images. As a result, the image quality can vary

Produced in Europe and the Americas from the twelfth century to the nineteenth, the highlights on display feature illuminated manuscripts and early editions of essential Christian writings, important examples that show the role of books in religious practice, texts owned and inscribed by the founders of Methodism, and several true rarities not found at other libraries.
