The Museum is delighted to present our elegant edition of the Holy Bible. Illustrated from the magnificent Italian Renaissance Bible of Borso d'Este, it uses the beautifully written prose from the King James English translation. Borso d'Este, the Duke of Ferrara, commissioned his bible in 1455. With more than 1,000 illustrations, the border on each page is sumptuously decorated with lovely vermilion and blue rosettes, gold ornamentation, delicate butterflies, birds, deer, trumpet- blowing angels, fierce dragons, and charming miniature scenes in perfect harmony with the biblical stories. The masterful miniaturist work from the Borso Bible illustrates events from the Old and New Testaments, and was interpreted in the spirit of the Este court with the refined style and aristocratic depictions of the figures. This exclusive Museum edition is housed in a custom-contoured slipcase.
