A CHARMING ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT CALENDAR LEAF WITH ELABORATE DECORATED BORDER AND WITH ZODIACAL AND LABOR OF THE MONTH MINIATURES, FROM A FRENCH BOOK OF HOURS
France, late, 1475. 162 x 114 mm (6 3/8 x 4 1/2"). Single column, 16 lines of text in a fine gothic book hand. Text of saints' days in alternating red or blue (special saints in gold), headings and numerals in burnished gold, five one-line initials in burnished gold on a red and blue ground, the usual "K L" at top left of recto in the form of gray and white acanthus leaves on a background of brushed gold, verso with quarter panel border featuring blue and gold acanthus leaves and sprays of blue or pink flowers on leafy stems, RECTO WITH THREE-QUARTER BORDER of red and blue acanthus and various flowers on a brushed gold ground, THE LOWER BORDER WITH A MINIATURE OF A SCORPION (representing Scorpio, the Zodiac sign of the month), AND THE FORE BORDER WITH A MINIATURE SHOWING THE LABOR OF THE MONTH (a man sowing). A bit of browning right at fore edge on both sides, minor wrinkling to inner margin, otherwise IN FINE, BRIGHT CONDITION, with only the most trivial loss of pigment. Perhaps even more than in the previous three leaves, the artist here has made excellent use of gold in the labor of the month miniature, where it appears as the bright rain of seeds being scattered into freshly ploughed furrows as well as the leaves taking on their autumnal coloring on the trees in the background. We notice this in particular because the gold on this leaf is even a bit more glittering than on the others. The worker here is warmly dressed for the cool fall weather, and the contrast of the brown plowed earth to the green field behind it is appealing.

FRENCH ILLUMINATOR
France,: Paris or Rouen, circa 1475-, 1500.. Illuminated leaf, 215 x 139 mm., with an illuminated panel border on each side of the leaf, one 2-line initial, ten 1-line initial and eight line-fillers, 18 lines of gothic bookhand; in excellent condition. A beautifully illuminated leaf from a luxurious fifteenth-century French Book of Hours. On the recto the decorative panel border features a hybrid figure riding a grotesque animal with a human head and the body of a lion. The panel border on the verso is composed of blue and gold acanthus and coloured flowers and leaves in fields of liquid gold. The delicate initials suggest that it was executed in either Paris or Rouen. The extensive use of liquid gold in the margins forming unusual geometric forms is typical for manuscripts made in the second half of the fifteenth century.

: ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPT ON VELLUM IN LATIN AND ITALIAN, Italy (Florence?), c. 1475-1500, with eighteenth-century illuminated borders, 135 x 97 mm., 78 folios, apparently complete apart from the final added prayer (collation, i-vii10 viii8), written in a mannered humanistic bookhand, added prayers in italic (justification, 97 x 64-62 mm.), rubrics in text ink, often capitals highlighted with red diagonal slashes, red initials throughout, some with simple red pen decoration, FIVE ILLUMINATED FULL BORDERS, probably added in the eighteenth-century. BINDING: Bound in eighteenth-century (?) brown leather over pasteboard, with the original Italian, fifteenth-century blind-tooled front and back covers laid down, TEXT: This is an important small-format collection of prayers, together with formal liturgical texts, including the Office of St. Catherine, Mass of the Virgin and biblical readings, in both Latin (approximately sixty-nine texts) and Italian (seventeen prayers). The lengthy vernacular prayers are probably by contemporary fifteenth-century figures (including the Franciscan peacher, Cherubino da Spoleto (1414-1484) on ff. 11-12v, and a certain “Ser Pace patre de sancta felicita,”on ff. 16-19v) and deserve careful study. Dominican connections seem important, including a litany of Mary “composuit frater Margaretus OP,” on ff. 51-53. ILLUMINATION: Six illuminated borders, certainly added, probably in the eighteenth century: f. 1, full border of small red and purple flowers with thin stems and leaves, interspersed with small gold ball; a peacock and coat of a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Minor worming at front and back, first couple of quires with a bit of thumbing and soil, but mostly bright, smooth, and fresh internally. This is a very attractive copy in an unrestored period binding of a collection of sermons significant because they comprise the words of a living 15th century author and because they come from one of the earliest presses in Venice. Robertus Caracciolus (1425-95) was the most celebrated preacher in Italy during the last four decades of his life. Called a "second Paul," the "new Paul," and the "prince of preach … [Click Below for Full Description]
