Title : Leaf on vellum from a manuscript Book of Hours..
Map maker : BOOK OF HOURS.
Date : France ca.1470.
Size : 5.9 x 4.5 inches. / 15.0 x 11.5 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :Leaf on vellum from a French Book of Hours, written around 1470 in or near Rouen.
The decoration on the verso is very elaborate with flowers and leaves in bright colours and much gold. There are many initials in red, blue, white and gold, the 4-line 'D' is especially striking. On the recto is one border with very fine leaves and flowers in one border. The text is written, in Latin, in a regular book hand in brown ink. An interesting part of the text is the last four lines on the verso, and to help you read medieval Latin I'll give you the transcription and translation of those lines. It is the beginning of psalm 122: 1 Ad te levavi oculos meos qui habitas in caelo 1 To thee have I lifted up my eyes, who dwellest in heaven. 2 Ecce sicut oculi servorum in manibus dominorum suorum [sicut oculi ancillae in manibus dominae eius ita oculi nostri ad Dominum Deum nostrum donec misereatur nostri] 2 Behold as the eyes of the servants are on the hands of their masters,[ As the eyes of the handmaid are on the hands of her mistress: so are our eyes unto the Lord our God, until he have mercy on us.]
image verso

Condition : There is a smudged part in the text part, and a part of the border is not as bright as it was.
