Title: Manuscript Vulgate Bible Leaf, 1250-1275, Paris. Fol 14
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 is a Lombard style rubricated spring plant initial in red, with extensively decorated vines and spring work, 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
This leaf is in very good shape, with minimal staining. There is a small hole obscuring a letter.
