These three items came together, including the mat for the faksimile illuminated papers. That item measures 8-1/2" x 12-1/2" outside the "frame" and 10-1/2" x 14" inside it. The illuminations include six pages which show the actual age spots and marks. The main item is perhaps the exhibition catalog showing treasured books from the Saxton State Library which opened in Dresden in 1556. During WWII many rare books and incunabula were hidden in 18 castles. The catalog measures 5-1/2" x9" and has 20 pages in ENGLISH. The Belser booklet is written in GERMAN. It's clean and nice and measures 8-1/4" x 11". The three would make a nice addition to an antiquarian collection, or for someone who appreciates illuminated manuscript and other rare books.
