Renaut de Montauban - Eugène, Grasset - Charles Gillot
1480. 4, 8 Bl., 224 S., 8 Bl., Privat-Ldr. mit beigebundene Deckel und Rücken, Etwas berieben, min. angeschmutzt, innen sauber Text franz. Illustré de compositions en couleur par Eugène Grasset. Gravure et impression par Charles Gillot. - Es ist eine wirkungsmächtige Erzählung von den Abenteuern der vier Haimonskinder aus dem Bereich der Geschichten um Karl den Großen. Die Erzählung hat eine internationale Verbreitung gefunden, bei der Texte aus Frankreich, den Niederlanden, England, Skandinavien, Italien, Spanien, Flandern und Portugal in vielen Varianten und Sprachen entstanden, und die den jeweiligen Umständen, besonders auch in der Renaissance bis weit in das 19. Jahrhundert, angepasst wurden. Diese Literatur des Hochmittelalters wurde entscheidend durch die Erfindung des Buchdruckes gefördert und ihre ritterlichen Helden sind vergleichbar mit jenen aus der Artustradition. Zu Beginn dieser lange überlieferten Tradition steht der altfranzösische Versroman (Heldenlied) Renaut de Montauban aus dem späten 12. Jahrhundert, bzw. einer der wenigen identifizierten französischen Chanson de geste (La Chanson de Quatre Fils Aymons im 15. Jahrhundert entstanden Prosafassungen erste frz. Drucke: Lyon um 1480 Paris 1506). Geschildert wird mit epischen Motiven des Mittelalters eine Auseinandersetzung zwischen dem Kaiser und seinem Vasall, der Widerstand mächtiger Adelsgeschlechter des Karolingerreiches - hier Haimon von Dordogne und seiner Familie, die dem König Karl Vasallentreue geschworen haben - gegen die Zentralisierungsbestrebungen Karls des Großen, der die karolingische Reichsb … [Click Below for Full Description]

The front is in very good condition with some slight soiling to the inner edge, the reverse is less clear, being recovered from a binding, but still legible and good. Size 280mm x 210mm. France, fifteenth century. From a small European private collection. This is a very attractive example of a lovely, small and neat humanistic hand from the mid-fifteenth century. The humanistic script had developed at the end of the fourteenth century. [Attributes: First Edition]

[INCUNABLE - GOUDA].
Historia septem sapientiu[m] Rom[a]e. [Gouda, Gheraert Leeu, before 3 June 1480]. 4to (20.5 x 14 cm). With 4 full-page woodcuts plus 14 repeats. The first initial is supplied in manuscript, in a rich ornamental uncial style in red and blue with brown penwork. All other initials are supplied by hand in simple red uncials. The text is rubricated throughout. Most of the plates are lightly highlighted in yellow and red, by a contemporary hand. Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment without a spine, so that the sewing is completely visible. Kept in a modern brown half morocco clamshell box. [79], [1 blank] ll. Rare third or fourth Latin edition (the first or second in the Low Countries, and the first illustrated edition in any language) of one of the oldest and most popular texts of early European literature. It is also the first illustrated book printed by Gheraert Leeu, just before his better-known Dialogus creaturarum. No copy of any edition before 1483 in any language is recorded in a Dutch library. Known in English as The seven sages of Rome, it is a series of educational short stories within a "frame story", in the tradition of the Indian Panchatantra, the Arabian Nights, etc., and some of the stories are variations on stories told there. These stories were first published in Latin at Cologne in 1472. Leeu probably published the first edition in the Low Countries, in Dutch with only a single woodcut, dated 25 July 1479. That edition is known only from two incomplete copies. His present Latin edition must date between that and 3 June 1480, so it is not clear whether it prece … [Click Below for Full Description]

In Latin, decorated manuscript and stenciled book on parchment and paper with musical notation, Western France, Maine (Château-Gontier?), c. 1480-1520; 1607; 1747. Dimensions 309 x 213 mm., 76 folios, lacking one quire in the beginning, written in dark brown, brown and red inks in gothic textualis book hands, upright book hand modelled on Roman type, and a humanistic book hand, number of staves vary from 8-10 per page, various decorated initials throughout. BINDING: eighteenth- or nineteenth-century brown calf over wooden boards, blind-tooled with a panel design. TEXT: Containing the sung portions of the Mass, this remarkable Gradual was the liturgical lifeblood of a community in Western France for over 250 years. Hymns and prayers were added over time, revealing liturgical changes as well as technical shifts in bookmaking and musical notation from the handwritten manuscript in the fifteenth century to stenciled letters in the eighteenth century. PROVENANCE: The first part of the manuscript, ff. 1-35v, was copied in the late fifteenth or early sixteenth century, c. 1480-1520. The second part of the manuscript, ff. 36-45v, 50-61v, were copied c. 1607 (the date "1607" is included in the rubric on f. 55v). The final part of the volume, ff. 62-76v, and text added to blank space on ff. 14v-15, are stenciled, and date from 1747.

Northwestern France, Normandy (Bayeux), c. 1480-1490. BOOK DESCRIPTION: BOOK OF HOURS BELONGING TO THE CHIEF MISTRESS OF FRANCE IN THE 15TH CENTURY. In Latin and French, illuminated manuscript on parchment, Northwestern France, Normandy (Bayeux), c. 1480-1490. Dimensions 186 x 132 mm, 81 folios, lacking one leaf, written in brown ink in gothic textualis bookhand on 20 lines, 1- to 2-line champie initials in burnished gold, nine 4- to 5-line initials on burnished gold grounds, FOUR FULL-PAGE ARCHED MINIATURES WITH FULL BORDERS. BINDING: splendid sixteenth-century Parisian binding, gold-tooled à la fanfare by the royal "atelier du doreur à la première palmette" of Henri III of France; modern fitted case. ILLUSTRATION: The engaging miniatures are by an artist who painted another Book of Hours localizable in Bayeux. PROVENANCE: The localizable feasts in the calendar are characteristic of Normandy, especially of Bayeux. The original patron was probably a woman, or perhaps a couple, due to the use of both masculine and feminine prayers. Later, the manuscript belonged to Françoise de Foix, Countess of Châteaubriant and mistress of King François I (c. 1495-1537), who composed her personal prayer to the Virgin Mary on ff. 77v-78. The initials beginning each verse spell out "Honneste femme Françoise La Cointesse," suggesting that it was written by Françoise de Foix herself. In the second half of the 16th century, the manuscript belonged to Marguerite Fresneau; her name "Marguerite / Fresneau" stamped on the front and back covers of binding. The book was later owned by her granddaugh … [Click Below for Full Description]

Boeck des gulden throene of der xxiiij ouden.Utrecht, "tC", (30 March) 1480. Folio. With 24 illustrations in text (ca. 9 x 6.2 cm), printed from 1 complete woodcut (plus 4 repeats) and 15 components assembled in different combinations, all rubricated and with architectural frames. Each of the 24 chapters begins with a large manuscript initial, 11 with two or more colours and others with interior white decoration. A smaller initial with penwork opens the book's first page and there are numerous further 1-line and 2-line initials. Woodcut printer's device at the end. Contemporary (Utrecht?) blind-tooled calf over wooden boards, each board in a panel design; rebacked. [4], 197 ll. First Dutch edition of Otto van Passau's devotional work (dated 20 days after the original German edition), the first Dutch book extensively illustrated with woodcuts. The Gouda Dialogus Creaturarum was published a month or two later, in June 1480. Each of the 24 chapters opens with a woodcut illustration, showing a pious woman (the loving soul) taking advice from a king (the 24 elders of the Apocalypse). In each chapter one of 24 biblical wise men (the elders of the Apocalypse) teaches the soul how to live as a good Christian. Our copy is richly and beautifully adorned with decorated initials supplied by hand and is rubricated throughout. The work was immensely popular and there are many manuscripts and early editions in both German and Dutch. Our first edition of the Dutch translation is of the utmost importance for the history of the text: serving as the source for all subsequent Dutch editions (a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Often called the "Father of Church History," the famous bishop Eusebius of Caesarea (ca. 260 - ca. 340) was a friend and adviser of the emperor Constantine and a prolific writer of history and scriptural commentary. He is best known for three works: his epitome of universal history (covering the period from apostolic times to 324), his "Historia Ecclesiastica" (the first history of the Christian church), and the present item, a collection of knowledge and quotations from classical writers intended to prepare the mind to receive the e … [Click Below for Full Description]

Renaut de Montauban - Eugène, Grasset - Charles Gillot
1480. 4, 8 Bl., 224 S., 8 Bl., Privat-Ldr. mit beigebundene Deckel und Rücken, Etwas berieben, min. angeschmutzt, innen sauber Text franz. Illustré de compositions en couleur par Eugène Grasset. Gravure et impression par Charles Gillot. - Es ist eine wirkungsmächtige Erzählung von den Abenteuern der vier Haimonskinder aus dem Bereich der Geschichten um Karl den Großen. Die Erzählung hat eine internationale Verbreitung gefunden, bei der Texte aus Frankreich, den Niederlanden, England, Skandinavien, Italien, Spanien, Flandern und Portugal in vielen Varianten und Sprachen entstanden, und die den jeweiligen Umständen, besonders auch in der Renaissance bis weit in das 19. Jahrhundert, angepasst wurden. Diese Literatur des Hochmittelalters wurde entscheidend durch die Erfindung des Buchdruckes gefördert und ihre ritterlichen Helden sind vergleichbar mit jenen aus der Artustradition. Zu Beginn dieser lange überlieferten Tradition steht der altfranzösische Versroman (Heldenlied) Renaut de Montauban aus dem späten 12. Jahrhundert, bzw. einer der wenigen identifizierten französischen Chanson de geste (La Chanson de Quatre Fils Aymons im 15. Jahrhundert entstanden Prosafassungen erste frz. Drucke: Lyon um 1480 Paris 1506). Geschildert wird mit epischen Motiven des Mittelalters eine Auseinandersetzung zwischen dem Kaiser und seinem Vasall, der Widerstand mächtiger Adelsgeschlechter des Karolingerreiches - hier Haimon von Dordogne und seiner Familie, die dem König Karl Vasallentreue geschworen haben - gegen die Zentralisierungsbestrebungen Karls des Großen, der die karolingische Reichsb … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dionysius Halicarnassensis
Bernardinus Celerius, 24 or 25 February, 1480. Folio (272 x 192 mm), unsigned: [110 2-78 8-96 10-378 386]; 300 leaves, unnumbered, first leaf blank; leaf 333 with tear in the middle of the text, but no loss; leaves 19-2 and 19-7 in facsimile; occasional contemporary manuscript annotations in ink in the margins; printed catchwords on versos of leaves 12, 14 and 110r; thereafter the same basic pattern, in each quire, of a catchword on versos of the first 3 (in 6's, 2) leaves (sheet catchwords), and the final verso (quire catchword); type 113R, 37 lines, with printed shoulder notes; capital spaces, with guide letters; 17th century full parchment, later maroon morocco label lettered in gilt on spine. In this copy leaf 386r, reads,(all caps): "Lappus Biragus Flor / Impressum Taruisii per Bernardinum Celerium de Luere. Anno chr. Nati. / M. CCCC. LXXX. Bissexto kl. Martias / Ioanne Mocenigo Veneto / rum duce inclyto." "Known in at least 6 issues, frequently mixed: see GW" (ISTC). The translator, Lampugnino Birago, has been variously referred to as Lampo, Lappo or Lapo, and as a result is often confused with Lapo da Castiglionchio il Giovane - thus the attribution of the translation to "Lappus Biragus Florentinus" in editions of this work; see M. Miglio, "Birago, Lampugnino", in Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani. Dionysius of Halicarnassensis (ca. 60 BC to after 7 BC) was a Greek historian and teacher of rhetoric. This history of Rome was his most important work. He also wrote several books on rhetoric and style. GW 8423; Goff D-250; HC 6239; BM-XV Century VI, 895.

Anonimo
Niello, 1470-1480 circa, nel nastro svolazzante l’iscrizione "SOL IN DEO SPERO". L’iscrizione consente di identificare il soggetto come un’allegoria della Speranza. La rappresentazione della figura femminile e lo stile molto delicato possono confrontarsi con altri nielli comunemente attribuiti a a Francesco Francia (Hind, Nielli, n. 242 e n. 247). Bella impressione, su carta vergata, due lievi ossidazioni e una piccola piega di carta nella parte inferiore dell’immagine, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Niello-print, 1470-1480 circa, inscribed in the flattering banner "SOL IN DEO SPERO". The inscription (Only in God I Hope) identifies the woman as an allegory of Hope. The feautures of the woman and the very delicate, but regular technique compare well with nielli usually attribued to Francesco Francia as: Hind, Nielli, n. 242 and n. 247. Fine impression, printed on laid paper, two small stains and a little paper fold lower in the image, otherwise in very good condition.

1480. Condition: Ottime condizioni. Il cofanetto è stato acquistato nel 2000. Da allora è sempre stato riposto in biblioteca ed aperto pochissime, pochissime volte. Non ci sono strappi, macchie, segni, piegature. Scritto probabilmente a Urbino, alla corte di Federico da Montefeltro, attorno al 1480, il trattato del celebre architetto, pittore e scultore senese Francesco di Giorgio Martini (1439- 1502) è un classico della storia dell'architettura rinascimentale italiana. Sulla scia di due filoni principali, l'architettura e l'arte militare, l'opera raccoglie nozioni e disegni che tanto interesse avrebbero suscitato in Leonardo da Vinci. Non a caso il manoscritto, conosciuto come Codice Ashburnham 361, fu di sua proprietà: con ogni probabilità egli lo ricevette direttamente dall'autore a Milano, verso il 1490. Si tratta dell'unico libro giunto fino a noi certamente appartenuto alla biblioteca di Leonardo, che attorno al 1506 lo annotò e impreziosì con disegni e appunti. Proposto per la prima volta in facsimile, il volume è arricchito da quattro fogli inediti, illustrati con 44 disegni a penna di macchine militari antiche e moderne, ritrovati da pochi anni e conservati presso la Biblioteca Municipale di Reggio Emilia. Nota: è possibile richiedere foto aggiuntive o un contatto telefonico per ulteriori informazioni. Cofanetto 268 x 395 x 70 mm con tre volumi rilegati a mano con impressioni in oro: il facsimile del codice, il volume con le trascrizioni ed i commenti di XXVIII-136 pagine ed il volume con la riproduzione in facsimile dei 4 Fogli Reggiani con la relativa trascrizion … [Click Below for Full Description]

1480. Der Arzt aus dem "Glöckner von Notre-Dame" The royal physician from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" COITIER, Jacques (1430-1506), französischer Mediziner, Leibarzt von König Ludwig IX. Brief m. eigh. U., Paris, 14. Juli 1480. Französische Handschrift auf Papier, 1 S. auf 1 Bl., c. 21,5 x 18 cm, Ränder beschnitten, hinterlegt, leicht angefleckt. An die Pariser Rechnungskammer, der er mitteilt, dass ihm der König als Entschädigung für die 500 Livres tournois, die ihm der Schatzmeister von Carcassonne, Arnoult Lullier noch schulde, die Hälfte der Schulden von Antoine Riboteau übertragen habe. Dieser war zur Zahlung des Soldes der Franc-archers der Chamapgne nach Langres geschickt worden, um die Zahlung des Halbjahressoldes für 1479 unter der Aufsicht des Franc-archers-Generals, Marschall Jean de Baudricourt (1435-1499) vorzunehmen, hatte das Geld jedoch veruntreut und war nun flüchtig. Coitier fordert die Rechnungskammer auf, das schuldige Geld einzutreiben, damit der König und er zu ihren Rechten kämen. Die Franc-archers waren die erste stehende Infanterie in Frankreich, die in Anbetracht der französischen Niederlagen gegen leichte englische Schützen (Crécy und Azincourt) 1448 aufgestellt, aber nach dem Schlachtdebakel bei Guinegate bereits 1479 wieder aufgelöst wurden. Coitier war nicht nur Leibarzt, sondern auch ein enger Vertrauter von König Ludwig IX. Die im vorliegenden Dokument bezeugte Schenkung einer solch beträchtlichen Summe - die Hälfte des Halbjahressolds für mehrere Tausend Soldaten - zeigt deutlich, wie groß die königliche Gunst war, die Coitier genoss.

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN, WITH AN HISTORIATED INITIAL OF KING DAVID PLAYING THE HARP
Italy: , mid-15th century, 1480. Italy, mid-15th century. This exceedingly beautiful Italian leaf, blooming with burnished gold and vibrant color, features an unusually large historiated initial by Ser Ricciardo di Nanni, a particularly skilled illuminator patronized by the Medicis and known to have worked on several notable illuminated manuscripts from the middle of the 15th century to about 1480. Favored by Piero and Giovanni de' Medici, for whom he supplied illuminations of mostly classical texts, di Nanni also worked for their father Cosimo, contributing his brush to some of the most stunning choir books ever produced. The quality of di Nanni's output positions him among the best manuscript artists of the period, and his illuminations appear in some of the world's finest collections, including the Getty, the Morgan Library, and the Fitzwilliam Museum. According to Christie's, "His style is supremely confident, fluid and appealing." His figures are "subtly modelled with washes of varying opacity and tone. People of all ages and sexes have large, heavily lidded eyes, sombre expressions--even the putti--and make tender, expressive gestures." The present leaf is an excellent example of this style: David's solemn expression is accentuated by his heavy eyes, sunken cheekbones, and long, downturned mouth--the personification of penitence.

AN ILLUMINATED VELLUM MANUSCRIPT LEAF FROM A BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN, WITH AN HISTORIATED INITIAL OF KING DAVID PLAYING THE HARP
1480. Italy, mid-15th century. This exceedingly beautiful Italian leaf, blooming with burnished gold and vibrant color, features an unusually large historiated initial by Ser Ricciardo di Nanni, a particularly skilled illuminator patronized by the Medicis and known to have worked on several notable illuminated manuscripts from the middle of the 15th century to about 1480. Favored by Piero and Giovanni de' Medici, for whom he supplied illuminations of mostly classical texts, di Nanni also worked for their father Cosimo, contributing his brush to some of the most stunning choir books ever produced. The quality of di Nanni's output positions him among the best manuscript artists of the period, and his illuminations appear in some of the world's finest collections, including the Getty, the Morgan Library, and the Fitzwilliam Museum. According to Christie's, "His style is supremely confident, fluid and appealing." His figures are "subtly modelled with washes of varying opacity and tone. People of all ages and sexes have large, heavily lidded eyes, sombre expressions--even the putti--and make tender, expressive gestures." The present leaf is an excellent example of this style: David's solemn expression is accentuated by his heavy eyes, sunken cheekbones, and long, downturned mouth--the personification of penitence. This portrait-like historiation puts the focus entirely on David's visage, asking the viewer to enter into direct dialogue with a figure begging for forgiveness. Besides being obviously beautiful to look at and encouraging the examination of one's own transgressions, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Renaut de Montauban - Eugène, Grasset - Charles Gillot
1480. 4, 8 Bl., 224 S., 8 Bl., Privat-Ldr. mit beigebundene Deckel und Rücken, Etwas berieben, min. angeschmutzt, innen sauber Text franz. Illustré de compositions en couleur par Eugène Grasset. Gravure et impression par Charles Gillot. - Es ist eine wirkungsmächtige Erzählung von den Abenteuern der vier Haimonskinder aus dem Bereich der Geschichten um Karl den Großen. Die Erzählung hat eine internationale Verbreitung gefunden, bei der Texte aus Frankreich, den Niederlanden, England, Skandinavien, Italien, Spanien, Flandern und Portugal in vielen Varianten und Sprachen entstanden, und die den jeweiligen Umständen, besonders auch in der Renaissance bis weit in das 19. Jahrhundert, angepasst wurden. Diese Literatur des Hochmittelalters wurde entscheidend durch die Erfindung des Buchdruckes gefördert und ihre ritterlichen Helden sind vergleichbar mit jenen aus der Artustradition. Zu Beginn dieser lange überlieferten Tradition steht der altfranzösische Versroman (Heldenlied) Renaut de Montauban aus dem späten 12. Jahrhundert, bzw. einer der wenigen identifizierten französischen Chanson de geste (La Chanson de Quatre Fils Aymons im 15. Jahrhundert entstanden Prosafassungen erste frz. Drucke: Lyon um 1480 Paris 1506). Geschildert wird mit epischen Motiven des Mittelalters eine Auseinandersetzung zwischen dem Kaiser und seinem Vasall, der Widerstand mächtiger Adelsgeschlechter des Karolingerreiches - hier Haimon von Dordogne und seiner Familie, die dem König Karl Vasallentreue geschworen haben - gegen die Zentralisierungsbestrebungen Karls des Großen, der die karolingische Reichsb … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dionysius Halicarnassensis
Bernardinus Celerius, 24 or 25 February, Treviso, 1480. Folio (272 x 192 mm), unsigned: [110 2-78 8-96 10-378 386]; 300 leaves, unnumbered, first leaf blank; leaf 333 with tear in the middle of the text, but no loss; leaves 19-2 and 19-7 in facsimile; occasional contemporary manuscript annotations in ink in the margins; printed catchwords on versos of leaves 12, 14 and 110r; thereafter the same basic pattern, in each quire, of a catchword on versos of the first 3 (in 6's, 2) leaves (sheet catchwords), and the final verso (quire catchword); type 113R, 37 lines, with printed shoulder notes; capital spaces, with guide letters; 17th century full parchment, later maroon morocco label lettered in gilt on spine. In this copy leaf 386r, reads,(all caps): "Lappus Biragus Flor / Impressum Taruisii per Bernardinum Celerium de Luere. Anno chr. Nati. / M. CCCC. LXXX. Bissexto kl. Martias / Ioanne Mocenigo Veneto / rum duce inclyto." "Known in at least 6 issues, frequently mixed: see GW" (ISTC). The translator, Lampugnino Birago, has been variously referred to as Lampo, Lappo or Lapo, and as a result is often confused with Lapo da Castiglionchio il Giovane - thus the attribution of the translation to "Lappus Biragus Florentinus" in editions of this work; see M. Miglio, "Birago, Lampugnino", in Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani. Dionysius of Halicarnassensis (ca. 60 BC to after 7 BC) was a Greek historian and teacher of rhetoric.

[Illuminated manuscript leaf on vellum]. Master of Jacques de Besancon.
Paris: c. 1480. 150 cm x 98 cm. Slight wear to inner margin, small hole in text portion. In an elaborate gold frame. § Arch-toped miniature showing the Virgin in blue holding the Child and a fruit, seated on a donkey, Joseph in front with a staff, a maidservant with basket behind, set in a landscape with city, an idol toppling from a column, and a full-page border with sprays of swirling blue and gold acanthus, red, blue and white flowers, on a paneled liquid gold and white ground, inhabited by a duck-faced Grotesque, with four lines of text in gothic bookhand with three-line opening initial with blue and mauve staves against a ground of burnished gold. Though not showing his trademark architectural frames, the subtle drapery folds, porcelain complexions, fine features and especially the fur-like, horizontally banded long runs of hair, in dark gold or gray, as well as the balanced composition, betray the influence, if not the hand, of the Master de Jacques de Besancon, whose dated works range from 1485 to 1498 and who took over both the style and the patrons of his predecessor Maitre Francois, active by 1473. The miniature includes the apocryphal detail from Pseudo-Matthew associated with the Flight into Egypt, showing an idol toppling from its column. On another miniature that survives from the same book, showing the Adoration of the Magi, there is a manger which derives from a model also used by the Master of Jean Rolin in a Nativity around 1450. Jean Rolin was probably the master of Maitre Francois, an artist with whom the Master de Jacques de Besancon has ofte … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Illuminated manuscript leaf on vellum].
Naples: late 15th century. A cutting, 173 mm x 182 mm, with historiated initial 'E' (doubtless the introit 'Ecce advenit... for Mass at Epiphany), 147 mm x 152 mm. Slight spots of rubbing. In an elaborate gold frame. § The Virgin and Child seated on the right with Joseph behind, set among green and yellow hills, painted in full colors and liquid gold, the initial itself in elaborate leafy design in dark red with pink and white heightening entwined with green leaves at the top and bottom, set on a burnished gold ground with colored trefoils in each corner, flecked blue surround, traces of text and music to the right of the initial, verso with parts of 2 lines each of text and of music on a 4-line red stave. Large miniature in the style of the Neapolitan illuminator Cristoforo Majorana, documented in Naples from 1480 until 1492 (cf. F. Avril, Dix siecles d'enluminure italienne, 1984, pp. 176-7, no. 156). The standing kinds are painted with splendid robes, fringed with pearls. The blue flecked border, giving the effect of the whole initial hovering above the vellum, derived from the classicising illumination of Mantua and Padua, and became a feature of Neapolitan manuscripts of the late fifteenth century.
