incipit/explicit: cantent in viis Domini quoniam magna est gloria Domini.../...Et misericordia eius a progenie in progenies timentibus eum... illumination/decoration : The margin decoration goes around the text on 3 sides. The rinceaux is predominantly blue and red with some gold, with 9 illuminated initials and 5 line fillers of varying sizes. The plants include the ivy leaf and the holly, as well as the more difficult to identify daisy, thistle, cornbottle, and wild stock, growing from a single stem. The flowers, stems, and leaves of the border were carefully superimposed on the reverse side in order to avoid a blurred effect. notes of wear : Tape, edges of the folios are darkened from contact with the matting, some darker staining/marks around the edges, pencil mark of “141” in upper right-hand corner of the verso and smaller in the left-hand corner of the same side, some lines still visible from marking of margins/ruling for text/decoration
