Description

Portraits are more frequently found in MSS and early printed books than one might think, among them, royal or patron portraits in book presentation scenes, portraits of authors, for example, Bridget of Sweden, Geoffrey Chaucer, Christine de Pizan, and John Gower, or portraits of characters, whether realistic or allegorical. Portraits can sometimes be compared between manuscripts and printed books. This theme appeals to scholars in several fields and will generate some interesting discussion. Martha W. Driver
