Rubricated chapter numbers, initials and marginalia in red and blue. 49 lines of text in double columns.  France: Paris, c. 1247.

One six-line illuminated initial in blue with white tracery and an interior painting in colors of red, orange, blue, gray and gold, depicting a seated St. Paul resting his hand on a sword. The initial sits on a pink ground with white tracery and extends over half the length of the center margin in blue, gold, orange, pink and white. One six-line initial illuminated initial in pink with white tracery and an elaborate internal design in pink, blue, orange gold and white tracery; setting on a square ground of blue and burnished gold with white tracery. Two two-line initials alternating in red with blue pen-work, & blue with red pen-work, extending into the margin.

The large size of the page is unusual in 13th century Bible production!
