||Cantigas de Santa María (Songs of Santa
María), written by Alfonso X the Wise, manuscript of Florence.
Conclusion or second part of the facsimile edition of the "rich" codex
Cantigas de Santa María of El Escorial, composed and written by
Alfonso X the Wise at the end of the 13th century, formed by the
reproduction, also in complete facsimile, of ms.B.R.20 of the
Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale de Firenze (264 pages of 45 x 32 cm)
which is the immediate but unfinished continuation of the first codex,
with the same formal and material characteristics, plus an additional
volume of 206 pages with the same format containing the text
transcription and the music of the cantigas, the translation of the
first volume, studies and comments of historic and critic nature, and
an iconographic and stylistic analysis of its 530 miniatures, 88
capital letters and 103 margin borders, written by Ana Domínguez
Rodríguez and Agustín Santiago Luque. Both volumes, bound in cloth and
leather, are presented in a matching box, along with an LP with a
musical assortment. Cf. Cantigas de Santa
María, manuscript of El Escorial.
