Description

This leaf, believed to be from a psalter or book of hours, shows the last line of Psalm 106 and verses one through eight of Psalm 107. The ivy sprays decorating the initial "P" are characteristic of French origin. Complex bar ornaments in blue fill the text block and separate the verses. In the 16th line of the recto, a later hand has made a correction in pen. The ink of the text is significantly worn and faded, but the gold illumination and red and blue penwork both remain bright.

Creator
