Pierart dou Tielt - Manuscript, Illuminated Book of Hours page from Tournai (Doornik) - ca - 1335
Bibeln, Handschriften - Anzahl: 1 - Manuskript

This 14th-century manuscript leaf is from a Latin prayer book that was written in Tournai.

Imagine the medieval abbeys with their libraries where monks created beautiful manuscripts, illuminated with gilt-heightened and hand-painted initials on red or blue backgrounds. Time was not an issue, contemplation and quality all the more so.

This is such a manuscript on vellum (thin parchment - animal skin) with beautiful decorated initials in red, blue and gold. This is an original unique piece from the 14th century. Dimensions: 12 × 8.5 cm.

Condition: although more than 650 years old, the manuscript is still in good condition; the vellum is slightly tanned. Elements that determine the value: its rarity, quality, age and attractiveness. This is a masterpiece in any serious collection.
