Perhaps Germany, ca, 1190. Perhaps Germany, ca, 1190. Hardcover. 349 x 241 mm (13 3/4 x 9 1/2"). Double column, 20 lines in an especially pleasing early gothic book hand. Recto quite rubbed from use in a binding, and the script there mostly illegible; the verso with crease and wormholes making the first line of text hard to read, minor overall stains from binder's glue, but still quite a good specimen because of this brighter side with its very legible script. This lectionary leaf contains a reading from Matthew, in which Jesus is explaining to his disciples why he speaks in parables. The script here is spacious, large, and easy to read, the scribe having an obviously practiced hand. The capitals, ampersands, ligatures, and fishtail-like terminations at the top of ascenders here indicate that the script is transitional, from the late Caroline to the early gothic.
