Early Printed Books and Illuminated Manuscripts
EARLY MANUSCRIPT OF PETER LOMBARD.
Most of an early illuminated manuscript on vellum [France, c. 1175]. Single leaf from a very early manuscript of Peter Lombard, with marginal glosses. Sententiae (book I part of distinctio XII. Double column, 39 lines of text in an early gothic hand, 320 x 275 mm. Rubrics, chapter numbers, and glossings in red, with eight two-line initials in either red or blue. Apparently recycled as a book cover and therefore somewhat soiled and stained, with two visible creases down the middle (no doubt indicating the spine of the book), the lower margin cutting into the text and the inner margin cut close to the glosses (but not affecting them), a handful of words obscured by rubbing, but the vast majority of this text preserved and still very legible.
