NEW - These are The Psalms of David Illuminated by Owen Jones, The Great Illuminated psalter dedicated to 'Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria'. Near the end of Jones' life he felt he had to leave one final tribute to a country he loved by paying homage to a monarch who represented all the splendor of a kingdom and empire at its zenith. This book is an elaborately illuminated setting of the poetic devotions which are not only sacred to both the Jewish and Christian faiths, but revered by those of all persuasions for their evocative literary beauty. Arranged and numbered to be read over a period of 30 days, the 150 psalms are set out in large, beautifully illustrated pages, whilst the decoration and finely interwoven ornament of the borders reflect Jones' craftsmanship and a lifetime of study. He is chiefly remembered for his contribution to the Great Exhibition at Crystal Palace in 1851 and for his great masterwork The Grammar of Ornament, first published in 1856. This volume may require additional postage overseas.
