A new facsimile edition of the 14th century Holkham Bible was recently published by the British Library.

This celebrated picture-book tells the Biblical story in Norman French, with the help of copious illustrations of everyday 14th-century England. Originally intended as a visual aid for popular preachers, it is now a fascinating glimpse of real life in the time of Chaucer.
