[between 1400 and 1450]
|Types of Resource:|
Script: Copied by one hand in Gothica Textualis Libraria (Textus Quadratus, approximately Oeser variant II), with a tendency to develop cadels on the top line, in some cases (f. 57v) featuring a human profile.
Headings in red. Heightening of the majuscules in yellow. 1-line plain versals alternately red and blue; 2-line plain initials and 4-line initials (plain or of the littera duplex type, but without penwork; 5-line on ff. 2r, 126v and 145r) in red and/or blue. Although the main prayers and hymns generally begin with a 4- or 5-line initial, the distribution of the various kinds of initials often seems at random.
Binding: Seventeenth century. Plain brown leather over pasteboard. The spine gold-tooled, with five raised bands. Paper pastedowns; red sprinkled edges.
Manuscript on parchment (calfskin) of a collection of prayers, passion narratives and hymns.
ff. iii + 153 + iii : parchment ; 205 x 140 mm.
