Book of Hours
Horae Beatae Mariae Virginis
This is the description provided in the Maggs sales catalogue. The fragment is listed no. 93 and illustrated (plate XXXI). It is marked as sold, suggesting that the sale was negotiated immediately prior to the printing, too late to drop it from the catalogue.
Written in a flourished cursive script (precursor of the civilite types introduced by Granjon in 1559)
A most attractive and unusual leaf, in beautiful condition with wide margins.
Book Decoration and Musical Notation
With two 2-line and sixteen 1-line initials in burnished gold on parti-grounds of blue and red, white tracery decoration; also thirteen line-fillers in a matching style. One floral side-border with two acanthus curls, in matt gold and colours.
Collection of Otto F. Ege, no. 50.
