University of Massachusetts, Amherst Leaf 26
This leaf is from a missal of the late fourteenth century. It
measures 29.5 x 21.5 cm, and Ege identifies it as coming from the
French city of Rouen. The dark slate-colored ink used for the text has
been worn away over the years, sometimes significantly; this, combined
with the angularity of the script, makes reading it rather difficult.
The decorations are few but are neatly done; even small decorated bars
or letters are illuminated. A distinctive presence of color is
achieved by red underlining, which is extensive in some places. See
Denison University Leaf 26 for more information about this manuscript.
