Cloth, 4to, 29 cm, 117 pp, ills (some colour). From the blurb: "Spanish culture is the result of many civilizations - Visigoth, Jewish, Berber, Arabic - which mingled with the traditions of the Romanized Celt-Iberian population, once colonized by Carthage. Of special interest among Spain's artistic treasures are the manuscripts produced from the seventh through the eleventh centuries, especially those masterpieces which were decorated in the Mozarabic style (the term given to the Christians who lived in the Iberian Peninsula under Moslem rule). These manuscripts present a strange vision of the world with strong, deep colors that cover the picture with vibrant bands of green, red, yellow and violet, providing the background for monsters, tempests, human figures of every description - all displaying an incredibly virile mysticism, evoking a new ideal, the antithesis of the Classic, which was to influence the art of the latter Middle Ages throughout all Europe, but which was anticipated in Spain by nearly two centuries. John Williams of the University of Pittsburgh has provided the Introduction and Commentaries to the individual folios reproduced here." Fine in slightly used and price-clipped dustwrapper.
