"In the same vein, Beckwith comments: the first of many British 19th-century studies of illuminated manuscripts, such books opened the public's eyes to the aesthetic and historical value of manuscript arts. The format was a model for 19th-century studies of the history and methods of illumination, a landmark in the diffusion of information about manuscript arts and their history and made a significant contribution to Victorian bibliomania. This may in fact be the very first book on illumination and its history to have color plates, and can certainly be said to have had a profound influence on early Victorian taste in and appreciation of illuminated manuscripts."--abebooks

Sir Frederick Madden (1801-73) was for thirty years Keeper of Manuscripts at the British Library. His edition of the Latin text of Matthew Paris' Historia Anglorum has never been superseded: as Richard Vaughan wrote in 1958, 'it is one of the finest of all those published in the Rolls Series, and it set a standard of careful accuracy and profound scholarship which has seldom been equalled since'. Matthew Paris, a monk at St Albans Abbey from 1217 to 1259, wrote and illustrated the single complete surviving manuscript of this 'English History', which covers the years 1067-1253. He was an accomplished artist and a racy, indefatigably curious and opinionated narrator of events. Volume 3, prefaced by a biography of the author, contains the conclusion of the work from 1246 to 1253, and an abbreviated version composed by Paris himself
