Paper - 18 × 11.5 cm
This 16th-century leaf of paper is from a Latin prayer book that was printed in France around 1520.
Before 1497 books of hours were written by hand; this leaf is from a printed book. Next to the text, there are prints with scenes from the Bible.
This is a leaf printed on paper, the border decoration is made with wood stamps. This is an original unique piece from the 16th century.
Condition: although 500 years old, the condition is still good; the paper is slightly tanned and has brown spots. Elements that determine the value: its rarity, quality, age and attractiveness. This is a masterpiece in any serious collection.
