Description
Manuscript - Geïllumineerd getijdenboekblad, Brugge ca. - 1450
Bible, Manuscrits - Quantité : 1 - Manuscrit

This 15th century manuscript sheet is from a Latin Book of Prayers written in Bruges, Belgium.

Imagine the abbeys in the Middle Ages with libraries where monks were writing gorgeous manuscripts by hand, illuminated with gilded initials on red and/or blue backgrounds. Time was of no concern, quality and contemplation even more so.

This is a manuscript on vellum (thin parchment - animal skin) with nicely decorated initials, with pen work in the margin, and embossed with gold. This concerns an original and unique piece from the 15th century.

Although more than 550 years old, still in good condition. The parchment has browned somewhat. Elements that determine the value are its rarity, the age-related quality and the attrctiveness...a top piece for any serious collection.
