The Wardington Hours at The British Library

The Wardington Hours, a lavishly illuminated medieval manuscript, has been acquired by the British Library following a successful fundraising campaign. The acquisition was supported with a major grant of £250,000 from leading art charity The Art Fund, together with donations from Friends of the National Libraries, Friends of the British Library, and Breslauer Bequest. The richly illustrated manuscript will be exhibited in The Sir John Ritblat Gallery: Treasures of the British Library, alongside other manuscripts produced by the same workshop
