Title: Book of Hours Calendar, Use of Troyes, Circa 1480. Illuminated Manuscript on Vellum from France
Condition: Very Good

A late 15th century illuminated manuscript calendar from a Book of Hours, inscribed in a flowing gothic script, produced in France, likely Troyes, as it bears usage for the city.

The calendar is complete, bearing all months from January to December, and is written in red and blue ink. Each month bears a two-line initial at the top, against a blue and red background. Highlighted names in the calendar identifying the usage include Sabinianus of Troyes (Jan. 24), Mastidia, patroness of Troyes (May 7), and Lupus of Troyes (July 29).

The calendar has been rebound in modern half calf.

One manuscript in 18mo (13.5 x 10.5 cm), 12 leaves on vellum

This manuscript is in very good shape, with minor soiling to the leaves, heavier to the gutters.
