(France [probably Paris], ca. 1260). 160 x 100 mm. (6 1/4 x 4"). Double column, 43 lines in a fine gothic pearl script.

Attractively matted. Rubrics in red, capitals struck in red, running titles and chapter numbers in red and blue, two five-line initials in red or blue with contrasting penwork running the length of the page, ONE EIGHT-LINE INITIAL INCORPORATING A SEATED PROPHET HOLDING A SCROLL AND CONVERSING WITH THE HEAD OF GOD, painted mostly pink and blue and embellished with gold dots. Margins with a few contemporary corrections and some indecipherable writing in a later hand. A bit of general soiling and light wrinkling, head margins cutting into the running title, a one-inch tear in the inner margin touching a single word of text on each side, but still a very good leaf with a large, particularly attractive initial in excellent condition.
