Illuminated manuscript, XV century (1430 circa), written most likely in a Scriptorium in Central-Northern France.
This is the calendar (monthly in this case), which in this auction depicts the month of FEBRUARY, with handwritten prayers for the saints of the month, the venerations, and much more.
Handwritten text on one column of 16 lines with the use of a pale dark brown ink and annotated with pale red ink.
Text in Latin and sometimes in French, liturgical manuscript in elegant Gothich-Batarde style, a classic of the XV century.
This handwritten parchment is in rather good condition, considering its nearly 600 years of age.
However, there might be some slight signs of ageing or marginal dirt that do not damage anything at all.
Total size of the handwritten parchment: 11.4 x 7.9 cm.
Size of the handwritten part: 6 x 4.1 cm.
