Northern France [probably Paris], ca. 1460s. 130 x 98 mm. (5 1/8 x 3 7/8"). Single column, recto with 18 lines of text in a very fine gothic book hand.

Recto with a little general soiling, the roundel lightly abraided, and a noticeable smudge to the top of the panel border, but the verso quite clean with just a little discoloration to margins and the "KL" offset from facing page, the roundel on this side in excellent condition with just one or two very small scratches.

Minor feast days in red and blue, major feasts in gold, numerous gold and painted line fillers, the five "A" initials and the "KL" highly decorative and painted pink and blue against a gold background, gold and pink bar surrounding the text on three sides, BOTH SIDES OF THE LEAF WITH EXTRAVAGANTLY DECORATIVE BOTANICAL FULL BORDERS with two small birds hidden within, and INCORPORATING TWO MEDALLION MINIATURES DEPICTING THE LABOR OF THE MONTH (SOWING) AND THE SIGN OF THE ZODIAC (SCORPIO) FOR OCTOBER.

The extraordinarily lavish and animated full borders, coupled here with extensive use of brushed and burnished gold--for major feast days, for decorative border elements, and even for the hundreds of seeds being sown(!)--suggests that this calendar folio comes from a Book of Hours that was commissioned for a person or persons of high… Read more

Description:
France [Avignon?], 1370-85 [but see below]. 200 x 144 mm. (7 7/8 x 5 5/8"). Single column, most leaves with 26-30 lines, in an attractive Secretary hand. See: Briquet, "Les Filigranes: Dictionnaire Historique des Marques du Papier dĂ©s Leur Apparition vers 1282 jusqu'en 1600," I (1966). Edges slightly worn and nicked, paper lightly toned and with occasional faint foxing, one leaf with two small marginal ink stains and another with a little soiling and fading down the center of one side, but very well-preserved specimens, all clean and entirely legible. These leaves contain a register of clerics who were inducted as chaplains around the time of the Western Schism, a period of considerable turmoil for church operations and hierarchy, in which Avignon and Rome both lay claim to the Holy See. Several dates spanning the years 1370-85 are mentioned in the text, including references to bulls "dated at Avignon," which further indicate that the original register was begun prior to the end of the Avignon… Read more

See: Branner, "Manuscript Painting in Paris During the Reign of Saint Louis," pp. 109-115, and pl. XVII.

Description:
Italy, late 16th century. 403 x 286 mm. (15 7/8 x 11 1/4"). Double column, 42 lines of text and headline in roman type. Matted. Verso with four-line woodcut initial surrounded by foliage, recto with a seven-line initial featuring a charming unicorn frolicking among blooming branches. Recto a bit yellowed, verso with a couple of minor smudges, otherwise a fine leaf, clean and fresh, with considerable appeal. The text here features the readings for the feast day of Saint John before the Latin Gate on May 6, which relate the tale passed down by Jerome of John's torture at the hands of the Roman emperor Domitian. Although thrown into a vat of boiling oil, the Evangelist emerged unharmed. A note from the most recent owner of this leaf says that it is from a Cistercian service book. The large initial with the rearing unicorn is well executed and extremely delightful.
