    Description

    [Illuminated Manuscript]. Three Psalter Leaves in Latin, with musical stanzas. From a fifteenth-century English manuscript Book of Hours on vellum. [England: circa 1470].

    Three leaves, each with nine illuminated initials on recto and verso, (one two-line initial on each side, with the rest one-line). Initials heightened in gold and rubricated in red and blue. The English Psalter leaves are more difficult to find than the French Psalters probably because many were destroyed during the Reign of King Henry the 8th. The leaves measure about 4 x 6 inches, and are in very good condition. Each professionally framed to about 6 x 8 inches. These leaves came from a Psalter, used to sing from and for devotional purposes. These leaves includes Psalms 91:2-92:3 (partial), 102:1-18, 108:4-109:6(p). (Latin/English translation included).
