Commissioned by the influential patron, Jean de Berry, in the early years of the fifteenth century, this masterpiece was executed. The Tres Riches Heures" is the most luxurious and most famous examples of manuscript illumination in late medieval Europe. Commissioned by the influential patron, Jean de Berry, in the early years of the fifteenth century, this masterpiece was executed by the three Limbourg brothers, the greatest miniaturists of the time. Their beautifully presented texts are accompanied by lush illustrations, in which the artists' imaginative and decorative genius are fully revealed.

The Belles Heures of Jean, Duke of Berry, is among its direct ancestors. But a sad coarsening took place in its repetition of earlier illuminations as well as a sad reduction in force when one of its three main illuminators turned to Flemish panel painting as a source to imitate. These esthetic flaws are inherent in the manuscript's historical position and are the very reason why its dissemination in facsimile has educational value.

The Belles Heures (Book of Hours) of the Duke of Berry (southern France), in private possession until 1954, is much less well known that the 'Tres Riches Heures.' Also, painted (illuminated) by three Limbourg Brothers, The Belles Heures contains superlative qualities no longer visible in its famous successor.

Like others I originally was interested in Tres Heures but also agree that this is a gem of a reproduction. As you flip through the pages, it's easy to believe you are holding an original medieval manuscript. The quality of the plates, as well as the descriptions, was outstanding and the binding had only extremely minor signs of wear after being printed in 1974. Overall this was well worth the price in terms of artistic, religious and historical value.

I was familiar with the Tres Riches Heures the Duc de Berry commissioned and with the Grandes Heures but not with this treasure of a book. The original must be amazing. Though I love the Tres Riches Heures with its beautiful calendar, this book of hours has wonderful sections like the life of Saint Catherine, the story of Raymond Diocres and the founding of the Carthusians and others which are simply gorgeous. The book is well, the reproductions are wonderful quality and the commentary is well done. If you love medieval art, buy this! And if you love calligraphy and would like to look at a good model of a textura script, this is also for you.

After reading "The Art of illumination" by Timothy B. Husband, I decide to get hold a copy of the Belles Heures facsimile. Wow, I am stunned! What an exquisite book, the color is vibrant and the gold simply shines! The pictures in Husband's book are more faithfully reproduced, but large numbers of them are only half pages. This 1974 Gorge Braziller facsimile shows full pages, and the decorated borders need to be there to see the true splender of the book.

THE BELLES HEURES OF JEAN, DUKE OF BERRY is so beautiful that I can't find words to describe it. The whole manuscript was done in one style.
Borders of the miniatures are light as lace and very elegant. The quality of the photos is so good that in some pages you will see gold ... and feel 3D effect. The book was printed in France by Draeger.
I have ordered as a "new" edition from the Stone Soup Foundation, Inc. And to my surprise, the edition was absolutely new although almost 40 years have past. No signs of time!
Everybody who really loves beautiful books will not miss this edition. Many thanks to GEORGE BRAZILLER for the great pleasure that we get opening this unique and gorgeous edition. Victoria, Finland.

A wonderful reproduction. The richness of the original remains and is elegantly captured. A good companion to 'Tres Riche Heures'.

Nobody could open this book and not to fall in love right away. It's a gorgeous edition and the price was a bargain.

Wrapped well. Very good condition. A lovely book.
I am very pleased
I stumbled upon these works of art in a Google search for ancient calendars. Truely beautiful paintings, the blue was so rare as to be reserved for royal patrons. Commisioned by the Duke of Berry, the subject matter is life at that time, hunting, harvesting, and suggests a daily integration of religious focus.
