"This is a book about why medieval manuscripts matter. The idea for the book, which is entirely new, is to invite the reader into intimate conversations with twelve of the most famous manuscripts in existence and to explore with the author what they tell us about nearly a thousand years of medieval history -- and sometimes about the modern world too. Part travel book, part detective story, part conversation with the reader, Meetings with remarkable manuscripts conveys the fascination and excitement of encountering some of the greatest works of art in our culture which, in the originals, are to most people completely inaccessible."--… (mais)

I got this book at the Getty Center, my interest peaked by the cover and the title. I didn’t read much into the description, but it sounded like it would be a fun read. And boy, did it liv up to those expectations. De Hamel was able to keep my interest throughout the entire book, and I learned more about these manuscripts than I probably would have if I had researched them on my own. De Hamel is an amazing writer, and I hope o read more of his work soon. ( )

A remarkable book. Mr De Hamel easily conveys his lifetime of interest, enthusiam and deep knowledge of manuscripts to me, the lay reader. He takes his 'meeting' quite literally. Introducing each manuscript as if it was an old frienc. Which in Mr De Hamel's case, they are. He knows them intimately. It is always impressive when someone with such detailed knowledge and expertise wears it lightly and communicats it easily. It is a common saying that if you make yourself an expert in something, no matter what, you will be able to make your living from it. Mr De Hamel is a case in point. A boyhood enthusiasm kindled by access to manuscripts in his local library turned into a commercial and academic career. The manuscripts he introduces are not as well known as other cultural artefacts of the times such as art and sculpture. But they display the same skills and dedication in their making. Craft and art combined. Wonderful. ( )

Masterful. An authoritative, instructive, absorbing and entertaining account of some of the most beautiful documents in the world. ( )

Meetings With Remarkable Manuscripts is the most enjoyable work of high scholarship I have ever read, if only because its author so clearly enjoyed compiling it.

Christopher de Hamel has spent most of his life researching and thinking about his subject, for years as the chief specialist in medieval manuscripts at Sotheby's, and now as librarian of the Parker library at Corpus Christi college, Cambridge, which possesses some important artefacts. Now that he has decided to share his passion with us, his schema is this: to ease us into the subject, he chooses 12 of the most important surviving illustrated manuscripts from the middle ages, held by great libraries around the world, and takes us with him to examine them all for ourselves.

Some of the manuscripts are perfectly exquisite, some ungainly, some inexplicable, but, as De Hamel says himself, "intrinsic beauty is a difficult conception in art history". Although pages from all 12 are beautifully reproduced in his book, and although he describes them, their histories and their meanings in minute detail, still the power of this volume lies not so much in its scholarship as in its love.
