Tiny illuminated manuscripts found in Boston bookstore

I recently returned from a vacation in Boston and came upon the Commonwealth Bookstore not far off the Freedom Trail there. Lo and behold, they had several pages of illuminated texts framed for sale from $850+. What was so interesting, though, was their size. They had a lot of detail and yet the pages were barely 5″ tall!
