Title : Leaf on vellum from a manuscript Brevier..
Map maker : Book of Hours..
Date : Tours, c.1485.
Size : 7.0 x 4.8 inches. / 17.7 x 12.3 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :RECTO: A very rare Breviary leaf due to the elaborate and unusual border decorations on the recto. The Gothic text is written in two columns and the decoration encloses the left column on three sides. The ground is divided geometrically in brown and gold with each diamond shape containing a variety of acanthus leaves, tiny birds and many different flowers. The text begins with a fine 3-line illuminated initial in burnished gold on coloured grounds. Panel border of acanthus leaves, flowers and birds on a partly liquid gold and dark red ground, and four 2-line initial in burnished gold on red or blue ground.
VERSO: One 2-line initial and two 1-line initials in burnished gold on coloured grounds. Very good condition. The miniature is very sharp.
Stylistically, the leaf very closely resembles the Breviary of Bertrand de Chalencon, Bishop of Rodez, Tours, ca. 1485.
