Paris was the undisputed centre for commercial manuscript production in Northern Europe at this time and was home to a great number of scribes, illuminators, bookbinders, parchment and paper sellers and so on. This large, two volume book focuses on many different aspects of books and their production, but most particularly on organisation, the craftsmen themselves, their clients, the materials they used and the book trade that they were part of. A major work with enormous amounts of detail.
