The McCarthy collection is one of the largest and most important private collections of illuminated manuscript cuttings, miniatures, and leaves in the world. Volume I (published 2018) presented Italian and Byzantine manuscripts ; Volume III (forthcoming 2020) will be devoted to French manuscripts. The present volume covers single leaves and cuttings from Spanish, English, Flemish and Central European manuscripts from the 12th to the 16th century. A number of them have been included in exhibitions at the Morgan Library & Museum, the Getty Museum, and elsewhere, and many have been owned by eminent collectors of earlier generations. Lavishly illustrated, Volume II incorporates a wide range of comparative material, introduces new research on many of the leaves and their parent volumes and constitutes a notable contribution to medieval scholarship.
