University of Saskatchewan Leaf 36

This is a leaf from a French Book of Hours made in the middle of the fifteenth century. At 10.5 x 7 cm, this is the smallest of the 50 leaves in the Ege portfolios: each side contains just thirteen lines of text. These leaves were not separated easily; their inner margins are ragged, with scraps of the other half of the bifolium often visible. The rubrication and decoration/illumination remain vivid, sometimes overwhelming the fading text ink. See Denison University Leaf 36 for more information about this manuscript.

Text: This leaf contains text from the opening of the Hours of the Cross at Prime. A scan of the verso is currently unavailable.
