TEXT FROM PSALM 118 - A DECORATIVE VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF FROM - 13. [1274979]
England, 13th century. n. 130 x 90 mm. (5 1/8 x 3 1/2"). Single column, 19 lines in a proto-gothic hand. Numerous spiky line endings in red and blue with gold dots and strokes, 12 one-line initials in gold on pink and blue ground and cleverly incorporated into extensions of the two larger, multi-line initials, both also gold on blue and pink ground, the "D" with two central flower motifs and with a bar extending the length of the text, the "I" with very exaggerated extenders reaching the lower margin and bending horizontally into the upper margin. With a small marginal note in a later hand "ad sext." The gold in the larger initials a bit rubbed, a few light stains in the margin, otherwise A FINE LEAF IN LOVELY CONDITION, the decoration quite striking for such a small leaf.
      [Bookseller: Phillip J. Pirages Fine Books and Mediev]
