French Illuminated Manuscripts in the J. Paul Getty Museum introduces the public to the richness of the J. Paul Getty Museum's holdings in French manuscripts from the ninth to the eighteenth century. This volume includes full-color reproductions of masterpieces from such works as a bible from ninth-century Tours; a sacramentary attributed to Nivardus of Milan from the first quarter of the eleventh century; the Shah Abbas Bible, made in northern France about 1250; a book of hours made in the atelier of the Bedford Master in Paris about 1450; and a book of prayers of the mass, written and illuminated in Paris by Jean Pierre Rousselet about 1720-30. It also includes many multiple illuminations from such manuscripts as a psalter by the Master of the Ingeborg Psalter, made after 1205 and probably in Noyon; the Wenceslaus Psalter from 1250; and the Boucicaut Master's illuminated manuscript of Boccaccio's Des cas des nobles hommes et femmes from about 1415.
