A leaf from a liturgical Psalter, in Latin.
Rhineland (or possibly Flanders or England): c. 1260-1280. Single leaf, 177 x 131mm. 20 lines of text in gothic script., 4-line historiated initial of a knight in armor, 4 initials in gold, gold highlighting in text. Small drawing of a dragon in red ink, drawing of a bird in left margin partly trimmed away. In very good condition. A very fine and early leaf, of interest in that other leaves from this manuscript are known which variously originate from either the Rhineland or England. Elaborate description on back, probably English dealer provenance. Private collection California.
