Vellum / parchment - 16 × 10.5 cm
This 16th-century leaf is from a Latin prayer book that was printed by Thielman Kerver in France in 1505.
Before 1497 books of hours were written by hand; this page comes from a printed book. Next to the text, there are prints with scenes from the Bible.
This is a leaf on vellum (thin parchment - animal skin) with beautiful hand-decorated initials. This is an original and unique piece from the 16th century.
Condition: although more than 500 years old, the manuscript is still in good condition; the vellum is slightly tanned and there are some brown spots. Elements that determine the value: its rarity, quality, age and attractiveness. This is a masterpiece in any serious collection.
