The Making of the Queen’s Manuscript

The Making of the Queen’s Manuscript focuses on London, British Library, Harley MS 4431, the largest surviving collected manuscript of the works of Christine de Pizan (1365-ca1431). Commissioned by Queen Isabel of France, the collection was planned, copied, decorated and corrected under Christine’s direct supervision, before being presented to Queen Isabel early in 1414.
