Minor soil and discoloration at edges, otherwise IN VERY FINE CONDITION, the gold bright and the margins especially ample. Our artist has used great skill and a particularly pleasing method to produce two very fine historiated initials. In use especially during the late Medieval period, the technique employed here is called grisaille, a method of painting that imitates the effects of relief sculpture. Normally involving monochrome painting that employs shades of gray (the term derives from the word "gris," French for "gray"), grisaille work was generally executed using a black pigment such as lampblack and an inert white pigment, often--as here--with the addition of gold highlights. The technique first appeared in the late 13th century and experienced its greatest period of popularity from the second half of the 14th through the end of the 15th century. This style enabled the artist to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gerard David
Madrid: Testimonio. New;. Hardcover. <p>This small Book of Hours is relatively unknown but is nevertheless of some importance since it contains 15 full-page illuminations attributed to the Flemish master Gerard David (1460-1523). The most beautiful is the Virgin with Child at the beginning of the manuscript; this miniature has the same characteristics of altar pieces of the period and is attributed to David himself. Other illuminations also resemble altar pieces but include reproductions of other miniatures, based on designs by other distinguished illuminators of the Bruges school, such as the Master of the Dresden Book of Hours and the Master of Edward IV of England. </p><p>The rest of the illuminations give a unique glimpse of the working methods of the Flemish illuminators. Conserved in the Escorial Library, this Book of Hours is also of especial importance because it is one of a very small number of dated books of hours from the Ghent-Bruges school. Towards the end of manuscript, a page bearing the date 1486 in the margin surrounding a miniature of St Lazarus, identifies this as one of the earliest productions of David's period in Bruges, which dates from 1484. </p> .

Catholicon
1460 - The Summa grammaticalis quae vocatur Catholicon, or Catholicon (from the Greek universal), is a 13th-century Latin dictionary which found wide use throughout Christendom. Some of the entries contain encyclopaedic information, and a Latin grammar is also included. The work was created by John Balbi of Genoa, a Dominican. who finished it on March 7, 1286. The work served in the late Middle Ages to interpret the Bible "correctly". The educated citizen could gather from it the substantial knowledge of his time. From 1286 to the late 15th century it was available mainly in manuscripts held by monastic libraries. The Catholicon was one of the first books to be printed, using the new printing technology of Johannes Gutenberg in 1460. Three issues can be distinguished in spite of identical typesetting: a) printed on vellum or Bull's Head paper; b) on Galliziani paper; c) on Tower & Crown paper. This has given rise to the theory that issue a) was printed in 1460, issue b) in 1469 and issue c) about 1472; Paul Needham argued convincingly that some copies of the Catholicon were printed on Bull’s Head paper in 1460 with solid two-line slugs of cast type, and that these slugs were used again to print more copies on the later paper stocks c. 1469 and 1472-74. We believe this to be 1469. This leaf most likely does not come from the "Catholicon" incunabula that was broken and sold together with an essay by Margaret Bingham.
