Manuscripts created prior to the 15th century are rare and priceless treasures, each a unique original. They are jealously guarded by the museums in which they are held and are seldom, in most cases never, available to be touched, held or closely studied other than by a handful of priviledged scholars.
The facsimile, a meticulous re-creation of the original using the latest printing and paper technologies and skills, results in a copy so perfect it's like owning the original in its present day condition, unaltered in any respect.
The Manuscript Collection facsimiles reflect a supreme standard. Each is identical to the original. Each comes in a hand decorated mount, and in a frame made from Italian moulding.
