Description: Beautiful 15th-century leaf from a French Book of Hours with large miniature of the Coronation of Mary. On recto: Miniature of the Virgin kneeling before the enthroned God the Father, with an angel holding the crown of Mary. Behind them is a canopy. Miniature measures 100 mm x 65 mm (3.9 x 2.6 inches). The image is surrounded by a foliate border with red, blue, and pink flowers with green leaves; border also contains blue and gold acanthus leaves and penwork along left margin. One triple-line illuminated initial (the letter ?C?) in burnished gold and red with white details. One single-line initial in burnished gold and blue. The text, in gold-brown Latin gothic script, is from Psalm 84:5. On verso: 20 lines of text in gold-brown Latin gothic script on vellum. One double-line illuminated initial in burnished gold and blue with white details. 11 single-line illuminated initials in burnished gold and red/blue with white details. The text is from Psalm 69:2 and Psalm 128. Northern France (probably Normandy): c. 1475. Size: 155 mm x 105 mm (6.1 x 4.1 inches). Some residue on extreme margin of verso; very minor tiny bits of flecking. In decorative wood frame. The text in Latin: On recto (Psalmus 84:5): Converte nos Deus salutaris noster: et averte iram tuam a nobis. On verso: Psalmus 69:2: Deus in adiutorium meum intende: Domine ad adiuvandum me festina. Psalmus 128: S?pe expugnaverunt me a iuventute mea: etenim non potuerunt mihi. Supra dorsum meum fabricaverunt peccatores: prolongaverunt iniquitatem suam. Dominus iustus concidit cervices peccatorum: Confundantur et convertantur retrorsum omnes, qui oderunt Sion. Fiant sicut f?num tectorum: quod priusquam evellatur, exaruit: De quo non implevit manum suam qui metit, et sinum suum qui manipulos colligit. Et non dixerunt qui pr?teribant: Benedictio Domini super vos: benediximus vobis in nomine Domini. English translation: On recto (Psalm 84:5): Convert us, O God, our Savior, and turn your anger away from us. On verso: Psalm 69.2: O God, reach out to help me. O Lord, hasten to assist me. Psalm 128: They have often fought against me from my youth, yet they could not prevail over me. The sinners have made fabrications behind my back. They have prolonged their iniquity. The just Lord will cut the necks of sinners. Let all those who hate Zion be confounded and turned backwards. Let them be like grass on the rooftops, which withers before it can be pulled up: With it, he who reaps does not fill his hand and he who gathers sheaves does not fill his bosom. And those who were passing by have not said to them: ?The blessing of the Lord be upon you. We have blessed you in the name of the Lord."
