Catalogue of M. Moleiro, the Art of Perfection 25 years of unique and unrepeatable editions



The never-ending search for the greatest bookish treasures that have withstood the passage and ravages of time has led to the creation of this book: a special thematic catalogue that gives us the opportunity to take a journey through the art of some of the most beautiful illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

A journey through cartography and the most fascinating atlases, featuring sailing routes, mythological animals, lion-drawn chariots carrying drunken Bacchus or Jupiter seducing Juno; biblical codices, in which art is a vehicle for the sacred writings; manuscripts that show us how to reach happiness, books that unveil the secrets of medicine and healthcare in images or that teach us how to turn metal into gold; millennial and centenarian manuscripts with unforgettable miniatures of awe-inspiring beauty: the Beatus of Liébana or the books of hours; works deeply rooted in the past and whose influence is still felt today...

This book is a tribute to all these treasures that constitute a priceless bibliographic heritage, a fascinating window into an exquisite collection of codices that once occupied the libraries of kings and emperors.
