Item:362500548884Illuminated Manuscript purchased from Charles Edwin Puckett cepuckett.com with certificate of authenticityUSA Shipping Only Includes frame This book of hours leaf has been stored in a dry nonsmoking environment. It was on display in my home for many years in the living room. It turns any room into a museum. It is clearly a lost art that will never return. Illuminated manuscripts are still relatively unknown in the art world and highly undervalued as a remnant of medievel European culture. I took as many photos as possible. The photos are untouched raw photos with high resolution. As my ebay account is still new I am unable to list this at a higher starting price so this auction is beginning at an unusually low price that will ensure liquidation. My listings have reached ebay's maximum already. Payments are secured by paypal and will take 30 days to clear, more than enough time for you to receive this item. The buyer will receive a tracking number when it is shipped within 2 to 3 business days. I am currently liquidating my entire collection so please see upcoming auctions for more rare art and sculpture.

France : Rouen, Use of Rouen, c. 1490 This leaf continues a section of five prayers to be recited in honor of the Virgin Mary. Books of Hours are personal prayer books of a devout and status conscious society and are not only works of art, but cultural documents of their time. They reveal a unique combination of sacred and secular imagery - made of the finest materials, by the best craftsmen, for a small audience, which could both appreciate and afford them.Region:Europe, Subject:Religion, Bibles, Type:Illuminated Manuscript, Place of Publication:France (Rouen), Material:Vellum, Language:Latin, Special Attributes:Illuminated, Date of Publication:c. 1490-1510, Original/Facsimile:Original
