Identifier: Item 9
Scope and Contents A manuscript leaf from "Flemish Book of Hours", ca. 1250-1300. This leaflet shows the customary wide margins and careful workmanship. The manuscript from which this leaf was taken, shows the influence of the Flemish or northern French in the few initial letters where a clay base was encrusted over with gold paint. This leaf only shows the faint illumination of the soft gold. The rulings used to write in a straight line are also evident on the leaf.
Dates: ca. 1250-1300
