Lima Public Library Leaf 50
This is a leaf from a Book of Hours made in France in, according to Ege, about the year 1535. It is the latest, or most recent, of the 50 leaves in the Ege portfolio, and measures 16 x 11.5 cm. The script is a curved gothic, and quite distinctive; notice especially the variety of directions and styles of the ascenders. By contrast the large illuminated initials seem very bulky and old-fashioned. Lesser first letters are filled with yellow. See Denison University Leaf 50 for more information about this manuscript.
Text: This leaf contains text from the end of the Seven Penitential Psalms (Psalms 142), and the beginning of the Litanies.

[from Psalms 142] ...O Lord, thou wilt quicken me in thy justice. Thou wilt bring my soul out of trouble: 12 and in thy mercy thou wilt destroy my enemies. And thou wilt cut off all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.
Remember, not O Lord my or my parents' offences: neither take vengeance of my sins. [ ]
