(Paris, mid-13th century). 140 x 89 mm. (5 1/2 x 3 1/2"). Double column, 46 lines in a gothic pearl script.
Attractively matted. Rubrics in red, capitals struck with red, headlines and chapter numbers in red and blue, each leaf with a four- or five-line puzzle initial in red and blue with descenders and penwork extensions in both colors, and both with five- or six-line initials in colors and gold, both with once-gold scrollwork infilling and with ascender or descender running at least half the length of the column. A touch of wrinkling, gold somewhat rubbed, small marginal smudge, otherwise excellent leaves, clean and rather bright, with very attractive decoration.
