I thought it was going to be a higher level read and it turned out to be rather elementary not what I expected from Backhouse. My mistake not hers. I clearly misunderstood her audience.

this is a very skinny book - that is comprised of VERY VERY few pages from the book and they are much smaller in size than the original psalter. and then there is text. not much of it, which is good, because it doesn't read as being interesting. this is what happens when one buy s a pig in a poke, i guess.

A lovely book with large color photos of some of the pages of the original Luttrell Psalter. Wonderful representation of rural life in the 13th century. My only quibble is that some of the nicer larger images stradle two pages which means that some of the details are lost in the gap between the pages.
