Most board boxes with light wear, contents in very fine condition with the leaves still in transparent paper. Without the commentary volume that was published in 1981. Sumptuous facsimile edition of this magnificent medieval songbook. It is the single most comprehensive source of Middle High German Minnesang poetry, written and illuminated in Zurich in the early 14th century, for the Manesse family, at that time the most wealthy family of Zurich. The splendid facsimile leaves are printed in four to nine colours, the illustrations heightened with gold. Very Good.
