Masterpieces of Early Page Decoration

The following decorated pages are presented in chronological order based on date of publication, listing the designer or printer of the page (i.e. as opposed to the book's author).

Click on any thumbnail to begin, and to continue browsing just click on the "Next..." button at the bottom of each page to go to the next page in this series. Please note that the last page in this series returns you to the first page — in other words, you can begin anywhere, and go through each page until you return where you began.
