Extraordinary facsimile of the manuscript St. Peter, preserved in the Library of Karlsruhe, with the compilation of two works by Ramon Lull by his French disciple Thomas Le Myésier, Canon and Mahaut’s court physician: the Electorium, conceived as a manual for professors of the University of Paris, and the compendium Breviculum, on the life of the great writer, which presents the origins of Ars brevis.
The sequence of 12 splendid full-page miniatures on Lull's biography and doctrine is one of the most original and artistic works of the French illuminations of the 15th century, and illustrates perfectly and with extraordinary refinement the biographical text. Each miniature is printed inside a large gold frame ornate with hawthorn or acanthus leaves or surrounded by red and blue bands, with individual or group figures forming sumptuous ensembles in gold and colour, rich and finely designed, including the images of Llull and Myesier himself. Magnificent book.
