    The rules of chivalry. Order of the Holy Spirit of the Right Will. Paris, Bibliothèque nationale de France, ms. Français 4274

    Facsimile reproduction of the ms. Fr. 4274, kept at the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris, containing the Statutes of the Ordre du Saint-Esprit au Droit Désir. It is strongly influenced by Giotto, especially when it comes to the sumptuous illuminations by Cristoforo Orimina, one of Italy’s leading illluminators of the 14th century. In order to fully grasp its meaning and beauty, a commentary of more than 150 pages is provided for the reader, with essays by Alessandro Barbero, Marco Cursi, Giovanni Palumbo and Alessandra Perriccioli Saggese and 24 out-of-text colour plates.
