Summary
This is a revised and expanded edition of what has long been regarded as the standard work on Irish Manuscripts...Part One presents [a] survey of the manuscript tradition, followed by essays on thirty-one of the great books of Ireland. The context, contents, and history of each manuscript are given, accompanied by a full-page illustration. Part Two surveys the work of the scribes from a practical perspective, examining script and lettering in detail. Extracts are given from fifty-two manuscripts, transliterated and translated, with a commentary on the penwork. The Irish Hand covers 1,500 ears of Irish script and letter design from the sixth to the twenty-first century. -- from book jacket
