Description by Ege from "50 Original Leaves" as transcribed by the Newark Public Library: "The treatment of the ivy spray with the single line stem and rather sparse foliage is characteristic of the work of the French monastic scribes about the year 1450. The occasional appearance of the strawberry indicates that the illuminating was done by a Benedictine monk.
