Description

    Original Leaf from an Illuminated Manuscript of a Latin Bible, on Vellum. Hand-lettered and decorated in Bologna, Italy in the thirteenth century. Vellum leaf, printed on recto and verso, contains chapters from the Book of Ezekiel. Page measures approximately 6.25 x 4.25 inches. Red and blue decorations at beginning of chapters and at left margins of double-columned (almost microscopic) text. Accompanying the leaf is a six page pamphlet on the history of the Latin Bible, with specific commentary on the bible from which this leaf was taken. Pamphlet and leaf issued in a limited edition of 1000, this copy unnumbered. Leaf has shallow crease and mild puckering. Tiny notch where page was once sewn in, and two almost invisible tiny pin-sized holes in text block. Faint foxing. A very nice item with red and blue decorations still vibrant.
