TEXT FOR OCTOBER, WITH ILLUSTRATIONS FOR SOWING AND SCORPIO.

(Northern France [probably Paris], ca. 1460s). 130 x 98 mm. (5 1/8 x 3 7/8").

This comes from a large fragment of a very appealing Book of Hours with especially charming borders containing human and zoological inhabitants. The labor of the month shows a man sowing in a plowed field, a large white sack of golden grain at the side awaiting his attention and a gray barn in the background; verso with a wicked-looking brown scorpion beside a large rock, with tall towers and a walled city in the distance. Usual flaking to gold on "KL," one tiny light brown stain to tail edge, otherwise a fine, fresh leaf.
