Publisher's summary : In the Middle Ages a breviary was an illuminated manuscript daily devotions commissioned by only the wealthiest and most powerful. Today, The Overlook Press is making the legendary Grimani Breviary available to all. While the original Grimani Breviary is safely housed in the Biblioteca Marciana in Venice, this linen-bound, facsimile edition captures all of the beauty and enchantment of this ancient manuscript.
