Original manuscript - 15th century - vellum - 9 × 6.5 cm.
Condition: although almost 600 years old, the manuscript is still in good condition; the vellum is slightly browned. Elements that determine the value: its rarity, quality, age and attractiveness. This is a masterpiece in any serious collection.
These 15th-century manuscript leaves are from a Latin prayer book that was written in France. The text is written with brown and partly red ink, while the initials are marked with red and blue ink and some initials are gilt-heightened, the initials are decorated with fine penwork with trails. All text on these leaves is written by hand.
This leaf is special because of the beautiful decorations!
