Original Medieval Illuminated Manuscript Book of Hours Leaf, Paris, c. 1420-30
Text: MEDIEVAL PRAYER

IM-10643: An original leaf from a medieval illuminated manuscript Book of Hours, with illuminations by a Master of the Boucicaut School. Fifteen lines of red-ruled, Latin text, written with dark brown ink in gothic book-hand script on animal vellum. This leaf measures 127 x 92 mm (5 x 3 11/16”).

This Book of Hours leaf was scribed in Northern France, Paris, c. 1420-30. This is an original, not a reproduction and its condition is excellent, as shown in the photos.

This leaf continues the text of a prayer said at mass.

Provenance: Sotheby's - ex G. Barilla of Geneva, and formerly Frederick Fowler collection (England c. 1820's).

Books of Hours are personal prayer books of a devout and status-conscious society and are not only works of art, but cultural documents of their time. They reveal a unique combination of sacred and secular imagery - made of the finest materials, by the best craftsmen, for a small audience that could both appreciate and afford them.

This leaf comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
