Gold foil ornaments could afford to larger extent only princes, bishops and rich monasteries. One painted with thin brushes and water or opaque colors, drawn with india ink and goose keel. Red color was often formed by red ochers, Zinnober, Menninge, carmine, Vermiculum, Folium, kite blood (bird), Krapp found and later Brasilholz was used. The precious magenta served in the antiquity and in the early Middle Ages contributed to dyeing some particularly magnificent Pergamentmanuskripte, which were then inscribed with gold or silver ink. For yellow colours stood yellow ochers, Auripigment, lead-yellow, Safran and Wau for order, for green colours green earth, malachite-green and for verdigris as well as Ultramarin, Azurit and Indigo as blue color means. For black tones lead and bone white, as well as soot were used. As bonding agents in the Middle Ages fish glue, Egg or rubber were used.
Hourly books were usually provided with book decoration. Individual copies belong to the finest examples (such as this) ever manufactured containing illustrated handwriting.
Over 500 years Old, this is a truly rare and worthy of framing!
