[between 1500 and 1510]
|Type of Resource:|
Purchased from Martin Hago in 1940.
Script: Two hands can be distinguished: ff. 1r-6v and 15r-63r are written in a small, even batarde; ff. 7r-14v in a rounded gothic script showing some batarde characteristics. Folios 7-14 may have been added later, judging by the difference in the style and color of the miniatures and their placement on the page. Prayers added on ff. 63v-64v in batarde, early 16th century.
Sixteen camaieu-gris miniatures by three artists, in tondo format, with gold frames inscribed in white capitals. The miniatures on ff. 15v and 19v are by the leading artist; the remainder are by a competent assistant (with the exception of ff. 7v, 8r, 9r, and 10r, which are of inferior quality). 4-, 3-, 2-, and 1-line initials, grey with gold highlights, on a black ground, some with leaves and dots in gold. On ff. 7r-14v the letters are composed of leaf forms. Ribbon line-fillers, geometric and leaf forms, gold, grey, and white on black. Rubrics in pale red. Calendar has KL monogram as 2-line initials, month and dates in red; feasts in blue, major feasts in red.
The black ink of the initials has run on many pages, and has sometimes adhered to the opposite pages.
Binding: 18th-19th centuries. Brown goatskin gold-tooled, silver fastenings. On the spine, flowers and the words "Heur en Latin. MSS. S. Velin en Min."
Manuscript on parchment of a Book of Hours, with Calendar and prayers to the Virgin in French.
ff. ii + 64 + ii : parchment ; 143 x 87 (105 x 59) mm.
