Besançon, was the capital of the department of Doubs and the former capital of Franche-Comté which has since been merged with Burgundy to become Burgundy-Franche-Comté.
Paris was a leading city in the production of illuminated manuscripts throughout the Middle Ages; however production plummeted in the early years of the fifteenth century as a result of multiple difficulties; including the plague, the fall of the
city to the English and the Burgundian-Armagnac feud. The fifteenth century thus saw a rise in manuscript production in provincial centers; particularly in Burgundy and the neighboring Franche-Comté owing to the artistic patronage of the Dukes of Burgundy.
Condition : 13 lines in dark brown, written in two columns. Cropped upper margin, shaving the top margin initial. For the rest in fine condition.
