TEXT FROM PART II, IX-X - A LARGE VELLUM MANUSCRIPT BIFOLIUM IN LATIN - 9999. [1276064]
Italy: , late 13th century. Italy, late 13th century. n. 360 x 465 mm. (14 1/4 x 18 1/4"). Double column, 54 lines in a compressed gothic book hand, surrounded on four sides by glosses in at least three different hands. Rubrics in red, headlines, chapter numbers, and paragraph marks in red and blue, a number of two- or three-line initials in red or blue, one two-line "Q" in blue with a curling descender extending down nine lines of text and into the gloss below, this outlined and flourished in red. Original prickings visible; two short slits with needle holes along both edges where the vellum was mended before use; a couple of marginal notations in an informal hand.Recovered from a binding and thus with the usual darkening and stains, corners cropped with minor loss, a couple of patches of paper adhering to vellum, but an excellent leaf despite its faults, with a number of interesting codicological elements.
      [Bookseller: Phillip J. Pirages Fine Books and Mediev]
