This book was written in 1891, and contains 18 plates. Bradley hopes to elevate the importance of Miniature Art with this study of Giorgio Giulio Clovio, Italian illuminator, miniaturist, and painter, also called Macedo or Il Macedone because of his Macedonian origin. Clovio was employed by Louis II of Hungary, Cardinal Farnese at Rome, and other princely patrons. Among the best known of the many works ascribed to him, are the illuminations for the "Book of the Hours of the Blessed Virgin", his masterpiece; the manuscript biography of Frederick, duke of Urbino; Cardinal Grimani's "Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans"; "The Victories of Emperor Charles V"; and the Farnese Breviary. The contents include: Autographs of Artists; Ditto; Farnese Palace, Rome; The Sakcinski Portrait; The Vasari Portrait; Medal and Portrait of Cardinal Farnese; The Curzon Portrait; Two Pages from the Stanze d'Eurialo d'Ascoli, Imperial Library, Vienna; Two Pages from the Soane Clovio, London; Miniature from the Victories of Charles V, British Museum; Cartel from same MS; Two pages from the Stuart de Rothesay Offices, British Museum; Death of St.
