Enjoy this classic work today. These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside Lessons in the Art of Illuminating - A Series of Examples selected from Works in the British - Museum, Lambeth Palace Library, and the South Kensington - Museum.:Look inside the book: On the contrary some exquisite borders and initials are found in books printed on vellum, one very well known example being a New Testament in the Lambeth Library, which was long mistaken for a manuscript, though it is, in reality, a portion of the Great Bible supposed to have been printed at Mentz before 1455, and to be the earliest work of the press of Fust and Schoyffer. ...The effect of burnished leaf gold cannot be given in chromo-lithography, but it may be worth while to remark that all the gilding in the original illumination from which this Plate is copied is burnished on a raised surface, even the small letters in the text. ...Beside this border is a fine letter of somewhat earlier date from a chorale book, German work in all probability, which, with many others, Italian and Flemish as well as German, were ruthlessly cut up into fragments, perhaps at the Reformation, perhaps more recently, and are now in the Art Library of the South Kensington Museum. About W. J. (William John) Loftie, the Author: William John Loftie (25 July 1839, Tandragee, County Armagh, Northern Ireland - 16 June 1911) was a British clergyman and writer, on the history of London, travel, art and architecture. ...He was educated at Trinity College, Dublin, and after holding church appointments joined the staff of the Saturday Review, and in 1894 that of the National Observer.
