Medieval Manuscript Leaf Folio Size Parchment 10x14 Red Blue Black Circa 1400
A page with front and back probably a religious text created in either a scribal house or monastic scriptorium. Nice letters in black, red and blue inks. The heading seems to be February on one side and January on the other which indicates this is probably a religious text, once part of a religious book indicating observances for certain months. Could be from a Book of Hours. Size, Date, Material and Region : Folio, measuring 14.5x10 (37x25.5cm) on parchment/vellum i. Animal skin probably dating from circa 1375 to 1425 in Germany, Austria or eastern France. Condition : Overall a Near Fine example! Very bold and nice looking late medieval example of a medieval leaf (page) NO tearing on very robust parchment. Slight fraying on the edge where the leaf had been bound into its book. Even though some of the black ink text has oxidized slightly over time it is still very bold and sharp. NOTE: The pictures are of the actual item for sale. The picture are NOT stock photos.
