(France, possibly Italy, mid-13th century). Sizes range from 124 x 85 mm. to 175 x 115 mm. All double column.

Two specimens attractively matted. Rubrics in red, running titles and chapter numbers in red and blue, each leaf with at least one red and blue puzzle initial measuring at least four lines (with one exceptional "I" that runs the length of the column), all decorated with red and blue penwork. One leaf with extensive contemporary marginal glossing. Two leaves with some light dampstaining (darkening the vellum but not affecting legibility), a few small spots and smudges, a bit of light wrinkling, but overall a mostly clean and very fetching set of leaves with a fine array of initials.
