      This book is a 're-release' without gold ink of an earlier title of "Codices
      Illustries; The worlds most famous illuminated manuscripts" by Walther and
      Wolf. It is completely worth the $25 that is being charged for the new
      release, even if it doesn't have the gold ink in it. The original title was
      US$60 so the new printing is a steal.
