Fifty Original Leaves From Medieval Manuscripts

Fifty Original Leaves From Medieval Manuscripts

Otto Ege’s Fifty Original Leaves From Medieval Manuscripts from Western Europe date from the 12th through the 16th century. Set number 11 of 40 was presented to the library by Mr. and Mrs. Franz Theodore Stone in 1964 on the occasion of the dedication of the new Buffalo & Erie County Public Library. Otto Ege was Dean of the Cleveland Institute of Art and lectured on the history of the book at Western Reserve University. Ege selected fifty manuscript leaves, primarily from religious works, to illustrate the art of the manuscript during the period of its greatest development and influence.
