Synopsis

Beyond Words accompanies a collaborative exhibition at the McMullen Museum of Art, Boston College; Harvard University's Houghton Library; and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Featuring illuminated manuscripts from nineteen Boston-area institutions, this catalog provides a sweeping overview of the history of the book in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, as well as a guide to its production, illumination, functions, and readership. Entries by eighty-five international experts document, discuss, and reproduce more than two hundred and sixty manuscripts and early printed books, many of them little known before now. Beyond Words also explores the history of collecting such books in Boston, an uncharted chapter in the history of American taste. Of broad appeal to scholars and amateur enthusiasts alike, this catalog documents one of the most ambitious exhibitions of medieval and Renaissance manuscripts ever to take place in North America.

Jeffrey F. Hamburger is the Kuno Francke Professor of German Art and Culture at Harvard University. William P. Stoneman is curator of early books and manuscripts at Harvard University's Houghton Library. Anne-Marie Eze is former associate curator of the collection at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Lisa Fagin Davis is professor of practice in manuscript studies at the Simmons Graduate School of Library and Information Science and executive director of the Medieval Academy of America. Nancy Netzer is professor of art history at Boston College and director of the McMullen Museum of Art, Boston College.
