   IM-1712 - c. 1247 Bible Leaf - Ezekiel - Daniel



IM-1712: (290x190mm) Original leaf from a medieval manuscript folio Bible with illuminations from the Johannes Grusch Workshop.  Latin gothic script, hand-written in brown ink, on animal vellum. Rubricated chapter numbers, initials and marginalia in red and blue. 50 lines of text in double columns. One seven-line illuminated initial extending along the margin in colors of blue, pink, mauve, orange, burnished gold and with white tracery.  One two-line initial ''E'' in red ink with intricate red & blue scrollwork that extends along the length of the text. France: Paris, c. 1247.

The large size of the page and the high quality of illumination is unusual in 13th century Bible production!

The two-line initial ''E'' begins Ezekiel 48:1-35: ''Et haec nomina...'' (And these are the name of the tribes...). The large illuminated initial ''D'' opens the Prologue to the Book of Daniel.

Inventory Number: IM-1712
