1748. Miniature (72 by 45 mm), 132 pp. written in black and red inks with 2 full and 16 partial page illuminations plus numerous colored borders. Stiff green vellum boards, gilt handstamps; some wear to edges and backstrip. Fragile and beautiful. A charming manuscript in at least two different hands. With great care the writers have summarized key episodes of the Old and New Testaments and adorned the pages with amateur ornaments of many different types. Perhaps the work of children, it is clearly represents a considerable labor of love and piety in a lay setting. (Item Id: 110477)
