Click image to zoom old map image



Title : Leaf on vellum from a manuscript Bible..
Map maker : LARGE BIBLE LEAF.
Date : Paris ca. 1250.
Size : 11.8 x 8.3 inches. / 30.0 x 21.0 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :A large vellum leaf from a Bible, written in Paris, around 1250! The leaf is from the book of Job, on the verso we see the capital L [for Liber] on the recto Iob. The writing is very regular and the decorations in red and blue are pleasing to the eye!
The chapters are numbered, but the verses are not: that happened only later, probably by Stephen Langton. Although the letters are so regular, it is not so easy for most people to read them, therefore I'll give you a transcription of part of chapter XXXI [31]:{ You will see that there are many abbreviations: vellum was expensive!!} Pepigi f[o]edus cu[m] oculis meis ut ne cogitare[m] quidem de virgine. Q[ua]m eni[m] p[ar]tem h[abe]ret in me deus desup[er] +[ et] heriditatem om[ni]p[oten]s de excelsis. The translation you can find in any bible!





Condition : In good condition.
