(Italy: 11th century). Each measuring approximately 150 x 180 mm. (6 x 7"). Double column, in a large proto-gothic book hand.
Rubrics in red, one leaf with a three-line "A." Recovered from a binding and therefore somewhat browned, one side rather rubbed and the text a bit obscured, but the writing still generally legible and the hand very pleasing.
As with many specimens from this early period, these fragments survive because they were used as binding scrap. Although there is clear evidence of their later reuse, the ink remains surprisingly dark and legible on at least one side. The lettering is large, the space between the lines is plentiful, and abbreviations are used sparingly, making this text easily read and understood. (ST13592)
$850 for the leaf with the initial; $750 each for the other leaves
