El Escorial, the Royal Monastery Library, Cod. Vitr.1.
Started in 1428 by Jean Bapteur and Peronet Lamy, left it unfinished in 1435. Fifty years later, Jean Colombe finished it. By inheritance came to the king Philip II, who kept it in his personal Library of the Monastery of El Escorial. During the Civil War, 1936 it was stolen along with other famous codices,but was recovered in 1962 (ABC Journal). It is without doubt one of the most beautiful manuscripts of our heritage.
