TEXT FROM MICAH AND NAHUM.

(France [probably Paris], ca. 1260). 159 x 103 mm. (6 1/4 x 4"). Double column, 43 lines of text in a very fine gothic pearl script.

Attractively matted. Rubrics in red, capitals struck in red, running titles and chapter numbers in red and blue, two two-line initials in red or blue with contrasting penwork stretching the length of the page, one three-line initial in pink on a blue ground and floral motif, with two extenders running an inch in either direction, and A FIVE-LINE HISTORIATED INITIAL WITH A PROPHET (NO DOUBT NAHUM) HOLDING A SCROLL. With a simple manicula and several later (17th century?) marginal notations, including several sentences (now quite faded) at the bottom of the recto. Some light soiling around the edges and a little overall toning, otherwise an excellent leaf, the two complex initials particularly well preserved.
