Title: Manuscript Vulgate Bible Leaf, 1250-1275, Paris
Condition: Very Good
A late 13th century leaf from a Latin Vulgate Bible produced in Paris, dating from roughly 1250-1275 AD. This leaf was written on vellum in black ink, with an early Gothic font in two columns from both the front and back side. There are Lombard style rubricated spring plant initials in red and blue, with extensively decorated vines and spring work, both also in red and blue.
This leaf was likely excised from a Vulgate Bible from the workshop of the Du Prat Atelier, bearing heavy similarities to pages from the copy in the Boston Public Library.
One vellum leaf in 12mo, 165 x 130 mm, 47 lines of text per side
On note of condition, this leaf is in very good shape, with only some material remaining on the margin from when the leaf was excised. There is a very small stain noted on the front side.
