Medieval and Renaissance Treasures from the V&A


Accompanying the refurbishment of the Victoria and Albert Museum's medieval and renaissance galleries, this beautifully illustrated souvenir type book presents 37 of the finest pieces in the collection, including some superb medieval ivory carvings, the magnificent Limoges enamel Becket reliquary, tapesteries, goldwork, manuscripts and stained glass. The introduction surveys the growth of the collection and traces elements of continuity through the 1300 years of objects represented, such as engagement with the classical inheritance.
