|Creator:||Bonet, Honoré, fl. 1378-1398|
|Type of Resource:|
Parchment; written in two columns of 33 lines, each with single vertical bounding lines; single horizontal bounding lines, top and bottom of written space, full across. Ruled in red ink.
Written in formal batarde script; folios 7r-9r, also in formal batarde, but in a different hand.
Between folios 147r and 152r there are sixty-three painted armorial bearings, perhaps a later addition (s. XVI?) as indicated by the type of pigment, the occasional lack of correspondence with the original preparatory drawings, and the fact that some drawings were never overpainted.
Pages foliated in red, upper right recto.
Binding: s. xix; edges gilt; purple goatskin case with brilliant gold tooling and elaborate doublures.
Written in Bruges ca. 1485.
Manuscript of Honore Bonet, L'Arbre des Batailles. With Diego de Valera, Espejo de verdadera nobleza, translated into French by Hugues de Salve; and other treatises on arms.
