Paris 1570

These vellum leaves are from a very late manuscript French Book of Hours, made after the reforms initiated by Pope Pius V in 1568. The scribe used dark brown ink and wrote in a fine rounded, Roman hand, perhaps in imitation of printed type. The large initials are in bright colors of blue, red, green, pink and gold adorned with delicately painted leaves and flowers. There are many line fillers, all in a variety of styles. The text is surrounded in a gold painted frame. size:16x11cm.

I have many more leaves of this book, if you are looking for a particular letter int he initial please mail me, I will will try to find it.
