Ege, Otto F. (Fragmentator)

"A facie irae i[n]dignationis tu[a]e.../...Respo[n]dit ei in via virtutis su[a]e" (The Seven Penitential Psalm and Litanies, Psalm 101); tape applied to fore-edge of recto (likely by Otte Ege to matte the leaf), fore-edge of leaf is darkened from outside exposure, inner edge of leaf is jagged (possibly from a knife to separate the leaf from the rest of the codex). Dismembered by Otto F. Ege in the 1940s; leaves used as no. 46 in his "Fifty Original Leaves from Medieval Manuscripts" sets.
