Description:

A Leaf from a medieval manuscript Bible with contemporary notes: Paris, France, mid 13th century, In Latin, On Vellum, (197x134mm.). There are fifty-five lines of double column text in microscopic-miniscule Gothic script. Book headings, chapter numbers, and one nine-line historiated initial "O"; encapsulating Christ Blessing, with a heavy embossed gold ground. Psalms 109 - 117. There are three large versal initials "C", "B" and "L" alternating in red and blue pen work with splendid dragons. Verso: There are fifty-five lines of double column text in microscopic-miniscule Gothic script, with five large versal initials "I", "O", "C". "L" and "C" alternating in blue and red pen work with lovely dragons. Bible leaves are becoming increasingly rare. There is a one line wear-affecting text, therefore causing the grading of this leaf to be less than fine [F-].
