The Luttrell Psalter is one of the most famous medieval manuscripts because of its rich illustrations of everyday life in the 14th century. It was not the first to include scenes of contemporary rustic life, but it is exceptional in their number and fascinating detail. There are wrestlers, hawkers, bear baiters, dancers, musicians, throwing games, a mock bishop with a dog that jumps through a hoop – and a wife beating her husband with her distaff (a tool used in spinning).

Just what I was looking for!

This book is a must for those interested in the everyday life and culture of the late 13th C., as well as those interested in calligraphy, illuminated manuscripts, and period re-creation. It gives a glimpse into a little-talked-about period between the "Dark Ages" and the Gothic era. The pages of the actually manuscript (a religious psalter) are wholly reproduced and show great details about everyday life entwined in the border vines. Backhouse, a noted scholar in this field, takes great pains to provide you with a rare glimpse into the middle ages and intelligently speaks about the creation and culture of the manuscript. I once owned a copy and used it for clothing research. I have known others to use it for medieval archery, entertainment and daily life research, as well as for it's calligraphy and illumination styles.
