Item Overview

Description

[ Manuscripts ] Medieval Manuscripts (Illuminated Leaf), Anon., ca. 1460. 2.1 x 3in. This diminutive vellum leaf is from an Italian Book of Hours written in Naples. The book was so small that it must have been the property of a lady who carried it in her purse. There is one large initial in gold with beautiful blue and red pen work extending into the margin. The text is in a regular Gothic book hand in brown ink with the rubrics in red. The text is from the Hours of the Virgin Matins, the most important part of every Book of Hours. Tiny worm hole in bottom margin. (A)
