Lima Public Library Leaf 29

This leaf is from a French Book of Hours made in the middle of the fifteenth century. It measures only 18 x 13.5 cm, and its broad margins help emphasize the often dramatic difference between the size of a text block and the overall size of a leaf. The text block is ruled in red; first letters are decorated with gold, blue, light plum, and white. The ivy leaves are gold, with flowers and buds in the ivy rendered in medium green and blue, and occasionally red and plum. Some leaves have the marginal ivy on both the recto and verso. See Denison University Leaf 29 for more information about this manuscript.

Text: Based on the leaves we have seen, this Book of Hours accords with the Use of Rome. This leaf contains text from the Hours of the Virgin at Nones (into vespers at the end of the verso). Note that the text on the verso is unfinished.
