Contains a partial facsimile reproduction of a little-known manuscript (Bodleian Library, MS Bodley 283) containing illustrations by an outstanding pen artist associated with William Caxton in another manuscript. Kathleen Scott’s extensive introduction, which discusses the physical characteristics of the book, its production in terms of contemporary English practice, and the Caxton Master’s style, also records new discoveries concerning the Caxton Master himself and the two border illuminators who worked on the manuscript.
