About the object

A finely decorated page from a Medieval bible highlighted with opulent liquid gold, blue and red pigments. The leaf features two columns of 44 lines of text, written in a popular Medieval and Renaissance gothic book-hand script, known as ‘letter bâtarde’. This particular leaf has one capitalised and enlarged initial, a large ‘M’. Further intra-column decoration has been added in the form of a long scroll with geometric details, coloured with red and blue tempera and liquid gold. Unusually, a small rabbit has been added to the end of the scroll.
