IM-10531: (127 x 92mm) Original leaf from a medieval manuscript Book of Hours. 15 lines of red-ruled, Latin text, written with dark brown ink in gothic book-hand script on animal vellum. One three-line illuminated initial in blue on a burnished gold ground with a floral interior design in red, orange and blue; one two-line illuminated initial in burnished gold on blue and pink ground extending into the margin with a delicate rinceaux design in  burnished gold and blue; two one-line illuminated initials in blue with red penwork. Northern France (Paris), c. 1420-30.

Miniature painting (68x45mm) illuminated by a master of the Boucicaut School depicting The Garden of Gethsemane:  In this night scene, Christ is shown kneeling in prayer with God the Father watching above and an angel hovering close by.  Behind him are three apostles in deep sleep - John the Evangelist is in a bright orange robe with an open book on his lap.  The garden is full of olive trees. The miniature is surrounded by text-frame bars on three sides in blue, pink and burnished gold with full borders of foliage with multi-colored acanthus-leaf sprays at corners.

The three-line illuminated ''D'' begins: ''Domine...'' (Thou O Lord wilt open my lips...).
