This 15th century manuscript page is from a Latin Book of Prayers written in France ca. 1450.
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 such a manuscript written on vellum (thin parchment made of animal skin), with gorgeously decorated penned initials and embossed in gold, and with a marvellous decoration on the side. This concerns an original and unique piece from the 15th century. Dimensions: 15 x 11 cm.
Condition: Although more than five hundred years old, still in good condition. The parchment has browned somewhat and it has a few stains. Elements that determine the value: its rarity, quality, age and attractiveness. This is a masterpiece in any serious collection.
