Bocskay, Georg; Hoefnagel, Joris -- Mira Calligraphiae Monumenta

A Holy Roman Emperor commanded that Bocskay create for him the definitive book of calligraphy. Amazing stuff. Later, Hoefnagel came along and drew little plants and animals in the margins... so well that each page looks like a unified, designed whole. This is a reproduction of that manuscript. Cost a bundle, but how could I not buy it?
