Psalm 44 Antique 17th Century Hand Calligraphy Manuscript
on Vellum Framed & Tab Mounted
Psalm 44, Antique 17th century
hand calligraphy on vellum, tab mounted and framed. "The
Psalm of Communal Lament".
We are very please to be able to offer
for your consideration this professionally tab mounted and framed
17th Century vellum of Psalm 44
The calligraphy on this vellum is
hand penned , our expert tells us it was most likely taken from
a privately owned, and or, commissioned book of Psalms. We believe
this because it is without illumination, and markings for musical
notations. It is beautifully mounted on a fabric back board
with corner tab mounts. The vellum is scribed in Latin, on both
sides, or recto inverso. Shadows of the letters on the reverse
side can be faintly seen through the text of the front. From
the look of the font style, the peculiar punctuation, and the
vellum used, our expert dates it to the 17th century. The passage
is a portion of Psalm 44, or the Psalm of Communal Lament. According
to our Latin translator it is verses 9 through 13. In these
verses, the Psalmist laments that God has been slow to act,
and has a responsibility to save these people from their enemies.
The frame measures 23 1/8 inches wide,
by 30 1/2 inches tall, by 1 5/8 inches deep. The frame is nice
and deep, providing adequate space to accommodate the ripples
in the vellum. The frame is finished in a dark brown stain,
and is distressed. The back is covered in heavy brown paper
with sealed edges. This piece weighs approximately 8 pounds.
Condition- This framed antique framed
vellum is in wonderful condition. There are no visible flaws
