Note:
As Albinia de la Mare showed, the script of this elegant humanist manuscript is attributable to the accomplished scribe Giuliano di Antonio of Prato, Florence, and can be dated to c. 1450–60 (see A. C. de la Mare, ‘A Livy copied by Giacomo Curlo dismembered by Otto Ege’, in Linda L. Brownrigg and Margaret M. Smith, eds., Interpreting and collecting fragments of medieval books, 2000, pp. 57–88, p. 57). The script was earlier attributed by de la Mare to the Florentine scribe ‘Messer Marco’. [dealer description]
Provenance:
The imperfect manuscript from which this leaf comes belonged to Otto Ege and is recorded by de Ricci, Census, II, p. 1947, no. 65. Other leaves were Quaritch Catalogue 1088, no. 90, and 1147, no. 117.
