Notes Manuscript fragment, mounted on card. Probably from a Book of Hours. The missing miniature could be of The Visitation. Possibly this damaged page comes from a Book of Hours illuminated by either the Boucicaut Master, his workshop or one of his followers. (The Boucicaut Master takes his name from a large Book of Hours including 44 miniatures made about 1405-08 for the Marechal de Boucicaut. It is commonly accepted that he was active between about 1405 and 1420).This would have originally been part of the Central School's Teaching Examples Collection.

Border with major initial "D", four lines of gothic text, line-fillers, Rinceaux decoration; foliate border with cusped extensions. Verso - similar, with red guide-lines.
