Illustrated Book Of The Week - Die Minnersinger In Bildern

Die Minnersinger In Bildern

This book comes from our trusted supplier Norman (Saturdays at Dalston waste)
I have found quite a few more offered for sale on antiquarian book sites
 A love-singer; specifically, one of a class of German poets
and musicians who flourished from about the middle of the
twelfth to the middle of the fourteenth century. They were
chiefly of noble birth, and made love and beauty the subjects
of their verses.
I cannot find out much more about these beautiful illuminations, but they are curiously inspiring in their graphic simplicity
