– Leaf from a breviary, Germany, 15th century. 5 x 7 . Interestingly scribed on thick paper, rather than vellum. In Latin, in a distinctive precursor script to German Blackletter. Penned in brown, with many initials in a Christmas red unlike any we’ve seen on such a manuscript: The red pigment was undoubtedly made within the walls of this German scriptorium, from berries, clay, and other local ingredients, imparting its unique and evocative vibrance. Double column both sides of wheat-colored handmade paper. Recovered from use in old binding, with stains corresponding to brushstrokes applying paste; brown somewhat light but legible, red prominent; minor defects and few bookworm holes, else good. Attractive conversation piece. Early manuscripts from Germany are many fewer on the market than those from France or Italy. Provenance: Sotheby’s, London, 2002, possibly from a distinguished Norwegian collection.
