For your Christmas list.

> Over the course of the last two years, we have been fortunate enough to be 
> able to offer two wonderful facsimile editions of medieval manuscripts 
> from The British Library: The Luttrell Psalter and The Holkham Bible.
> This year we are thrilled to offer a new facsimile: the Bodleian Library's 
> "Book of Beasts".
> This is a stunning piece of publishing. The Bodleian Bestiary (MS Bodley 
> 764) is a wonderful work of art and the images are superbly rendered in 
> this facsimile. The gold leaf work in particular, which was realized using 
> a unique printing process, is quite spectacular. The Bestiary is 
> introduced and set in context by Christopher de Hamel.
> Up until the end of the year, we are offering the "Book of Beasts" at a 
> special introductory price of $199.00. On January 1st, the price will 
> revert to the list price of $250.00.
> Below is a link to further details and to sample pages from the book.
> This is a perfect gift for the medievalist in your life... and/or maybe 
> for yourself.
> We will look forward to hearing from you.
> With regards,
> Ian Stevens
