Title : Leaf from a printed Book of Hours on vellum..
Map maker : BOOK OF HOURS.
Date : Paris 1517.
Size : 6.5 x 4.3 inches. / 16.5 x 11.0 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :Incunable on vellum, Paris, ca 1517! At the end of the Middle Ages the art of printing was invented and Books of Hours were printed as well. But for a very short period the printers looked back to the scribes ! They printed on vellum and still drew the lines between which the text was to be "written"!
One of the best known printers was Gilles Hardouin, who had his workshop in Paris near the Notre Dame. This leaf was, probably, printed by him.
There was still a lot of handwork to be done : the initials were coloured, a gold frame was drawn around the text and on the verso the picture from the Danse Macabre was painted - unfortunately rather clumsily!The text is from the Litany of many Saints, just before the Office of the Dead.
image verso
Condition : Good, but the painting is a bit damaged.
