Thursday, May 14, 2020

Despite the RSA 2020 Philadelphia meeting being cancelled and our RSA members missing this wonderful exhibition at Penn, the catalogue for Making the Renaissance Manuscript: Discoveries from Philadelphia Libraries is now available for purchase.

This exhibition catalogue examines the making of the hand-written and hand-illuminated book during a time of great political, religious, and technological transformation in Europe. Through approximately forty loans from ten regional institutions, as well another forty items from Penn's own collections, the exhibition examines the full intellectual and artistic depth of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries through a varied selection of extraordinary manuscripts, cuttings, and incunables, many of which have never before been exhibited.
