This vellum leaf is from an early Breviary written in northern France or Flanders. The text is written in a single column (21 lines) in a clear gothic book hand in black and red ink. There are 5 large initials in red, blue, white, and one of them has burnished gold, with a decorative border extending into the margins.


There is light toning and a number of tiny holes caused by the oxidation of the black pigment.
