Old books in New York

Two very small but exquisite views of the very old are to be seen in two
shows at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.  One is a suite of really
beautiful illuminated manuscript pages in the lovely exhibit "Mirror of the
Medieval World" and the other is a few very old bibles in the St. Francis of
Assisi exhibit (just recently opened) dating back to about 1200. This show
also includes a small selection of illuminated manuscript pages as well as
other older things (tempera panels on wood, etc.) of interest.
