Legend to the illustrations in the print: According to Viollet-le-Duc, the first notions of art in Western Europe spread from Gaul, the territory between the Loire and the Rhine, to the other nations, including Italy, from the ninth to the twelfth century, "notwithstanding the objections of those for whom Western arts necessarily originated in Italy from the time of the Roman Empire ". (Entretiens sur I'architecture, page 202.) The splendid fragments from the school of Canterbury in our plate confirm this assertion. According to the classification of the different schools of illumination, established by Sylvestre, Champollion-Figeac, Denis, Viel-Castel and Bastard, the Franco-Saxon school arose around 800, from a fusion of the Southern and the Angle-Saxon schools. During the Romanesque period, and under Byzantine influence, there were two schools, the Franco-Romanesque school, from 950 to 1200, and the German-Romanesque from 1000 to 1200; the first Gothic style dating only from 1240. We shall follow chronological order as far as possible: No. 16. Taken from the Bible known as the Bible of Lothair. — Bibliotheque Nationale, 750-800 (Gallo-Frankish school). No. 15,21,30. Latin manuscript, n 269. — Bibl. Nat., 900-950. No. 6 and 7. Latin manuscript, n 8878. — Bibl. Nat., 980. No. 1 and 4. Latin manuscript, n 278. —Bibl. Nat., 1100 (Greco-Lombard). No. 8 and 10. Latin manuscript, n 8873. — Bibl. Nat., 1100. No. 9, 11. 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28. 29, 31, 32, 33 (n 17 and 23 go together, n 17 ending the motif.) Biblia sacra in three vols. — Library of Sainte-Genevieve, 1150 (Greco-English). This manuscript, transcribed by Manierus of Canterbury, one of the masters of that school, is regarded as a rare and precious example of the Greco-Saxon style of that period. Its decorations bear a certain relationship to those of the famous manuscript of Ethelgar, which forms part of the public library of Rouen. No. 22, 23, 17 and 29 present new and unknown shapes, as does n 25, which is of Byzantine expression, thoroughly modified by Saxon genius. No. 2, 5 and 3. Latin manuscript, n 8959. — Bibl. Nat., 1150. No. 12, 13 and 14. Manuscript n 212. — Bibl. Nat., 1190 (French). Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!
