Vellum, with beautiful hand-painted and decorated initials and border
|Number of Books:||0|
Vellum/parchment - 20 x 12 cm.
This 16th century page is from a Latin book of prayers printed by Thielman Kerver ca. 1500 in France.
Before 1497 the Books of Hours were written by hand, this page is from a book that was printed.
This is a vellum page (thin parchment made of animal skin) with nice hand decorated initials and a nice edge with flowers and leaves. This concerns an original, unique piece from the 16th century.
Condition: Although more than 500 years old, the parchment has browned somewhat and has brown stains. Elements determining the value are rareness, quality, age and attractiveness...a top piece in any serious collection.
