"The fact that Lucy Freeman Sandler, and others like her, have inspired so much sustained investigation is both a tribute to her and yet another reminder of the urgent need for further catalogues of the great collections in the UK and abroad." (D. McKitterick in: Times Literary Supplement, 23 January 2009, p. 29)

"Bref, ce recueil d'études richement illustré, mis en page avec l'élégance coutumière aux productions de Harvey Miller, fournira au lecteur une mine d'informations et d'interprétations nouvelles, (...), avec - comme souvent dans ce genre de mélanges kaléidoscopiques - à boire et à manger." (D. Vanwijnsberghe, dans: Revue Belge d'Archéologie et d'Histoire de l'Art, n° 79, 2010, p. 105-106)

"Many other provocative and valuable offerings to the study of manuscript illumination are found in this volume. The thematic and methodological variety of the essays is worthy testimony to Sandler’s rich and wide-ranging scholarship. Certainly the variety of subjects and general excellence of the contributions will insure the book’s regular consultation in the future. In short, this is a handsome and admirable tribute to an eminent scholar."

Richard A. Leson (University of Wisconsin) in CAA Review, May 2010


This volume is published in honour of Lucy Freeman Sandler, Helen Gould Sheppard Professor of Art History, Emerita at New York University, whose contribution to the study of illuminated manuscripts, and to English Gothic book illumination in particular has been outstanding. The articles offered here are all in deep appreciation for her friendship, her teaching, and her collegiality, and the thematic range and methodological variety of the essays truly reflect the breadth and depth of her intellectual interests.
