13th to late 15th century or ear · England, France, Netherlands, Italy, etc.
All of the leaves are vellum and are indited in textura (textualis), batarde, hybrida, and Humanist script. Decoration includes illumination of borders, initials, and line fillers. Because the texts are in Latin and the script is mostly textualis, localization is less sure and more difficult than it might otherwise be, but geographic range is sure to include the Northern Netherlands, England, France, and Italy and likely also the southern Netherlands. The texts are liturgical, devotional, theological, and legal. And finally, one text is not in Latin, but in vernacular Dutch.

Provenance: Accumulated over the course of the last 20 years via the purchase of large collections and as come alongs in lots at auction. Condition overall is very good, but the leaves that have been recovered from use in binding are darkly stained from the glue and the action of the leather of the bindings. (Inventory #: 36711)
