New to Addison - A Medieval Masterpiece


The Breslau Psalter

Exceptionally sumptuous and imposing, the Breslau Psalter is one of the most impressive manuscripts to have survived from the Middle Ages. The original is kept at the world-renowned Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, who say that this ‘Psalter displays the piety, wealth and cosmopolitan tastes of its ducal patrons’. The facsimile is available now at Addison Publications.
