The Codex Gigas (English: Giant Book) is the largest extant medieval manuscript in the world. It is also known as the Devil's Bible because of a large illustration of the devil on the inside and the legend surrounding its creation. It is thought to have been created in the early 12th century in the Benedictine monastery of Podlažice in Bohemia (modern Czech Republic). It contains the Vulgate Bible as well as many historical documents all written in Latin.
The Illuminated Origin of Species, a one-of-a-kind work of art, combines traditional illumination and botanical art with the unabridged first edition of Darwin’s masterpiece of scientific literature.
