Medieval Manuscript Leaf, Sacramentary, Vellum, Germany, C.1100-1150. For Sale

Medieval Manuscript Leaf, Sacramentary, Vellum, Germany, C.1100-1150.

This leaf is from a Sacramentary that was probably produced in Southern Germany c.1100-1150.

The size of the leaf is approx. 326mm x 231mm (12 4/5ins. x 9 1/10ins.).

The text includes the Votive Mass for Deliverance from Mortality in Time of Pestilence followed by the occasional prayers said “In Time of Famine” and “In Time of Cattle Plague”.

There are 29 lines of script (ruled for 30 lines but line 9 not used) in three sizes of very fine Romanesque script in dark brown, rubrics in red.

The leaf is decorated with eleven initials, three two-line and eight one-line, all in red, six of which have red dots within them.

The leaf is ruled in plummet (horizontally only) and the text begins above the top line.

The top, bottom and outside margins are filled with “gloss”(or perhaps additional prayers?) in pale brown and probably written in the fifteenth century.

Please be aware of the condition of this item. What you can see in the pictures is exactly what the winning buyer will receive. All the information above relates to the verso of the leaf. Whilst it can just be seen that the recto does have script on it, this is almost invisible because that side of the vellum has been dyed black. The leaf has been used as the cover of a book and because of this exhibits condition problems. The four corners have been removed (with only minor loss of text), there are several small holes in the body of the leaf, and there are also cuts, stains and creases.

Whilst the leaf could be described as a wreck, there is no doubt that it represents a good example of Romanesque script written by a very talented scribe. The leaf was used as the cover for a copy of [Sebastian Münster; David Qimhi; Hieronymus Froben;Nikolaus Episcopius] Dictionarium Hebraicum, iam ultimo ab autore Sebastiano Munstero recognitum, & Rabinis, praesertim ex Radicibus David Kimhi, auctum & locupletatum. Basileae, an. M D XXXIX (Per Hier. Frobenium & Nic. Episcopium... mense Augusto., 1539. The fact that this was printed in Basle gives rise to the suggestion that the manuscript leaf was from a Southern German scriptorium.
