Scholarly monograph devoted to a lavishly illuminated manuscript in the British Library, offering an illustrated genealogy of the royal houses of Portugal and Spain. The miniatures illustrating the manuscript, prepared for the Infante Fernando of Portugal (1507-1534), were partly supplied by the Portugal-based artist Antonio de Hollanda, father of Francisco de Hollanda, and partly by the famous illuminator Simon Bening of Bruges.
