Nom réel
Margaret of York
A propos de ma bibliothèque
My husband's late father, Duke Phillip the Good of Burgundy, had formed one of the great libraries of Europe, with over 1,000 volumes. My own library is only a few dozen volumes, but many are among the most beautiful volumes known, from some of the best Flemish Burgundian artists.

I have been a patron to William Caxton, a translator, and one who becomes a printer in England.

The information about my library is based on the proceedings of a symposium organized by the Department of Manuscripts of the J. Paul Getty Museum, in collaboration with the Huntington Library and Art Collection, documented in the book "Margaret of York, Simon Marmion, and the Visions of Tondal", edited by Thomas Kren.

Some volumes in the library are composed of several books. Each book has been listed separately, as well as the volume. In this case, all are tagged with the modern manuscript accession number. It thus becomes more clear that there are duplicate books in the library, though they are bound into different volumes.
