- From a large-format noted Breviary. Double columns written in dark brown ink in two sizes of gothic script, 27 lines, ruled lightly with plummet, square notation on four-line staves ruled in red, two-line initials in red and blue with contrasting penwork, capitals touched in red; creased and slightly soiled from use as an archival wrapper.
- Repaired with a strip of vellum on which is written an elaborate but spurious note in a nineteenth-century hand in pseudo-medieval French. It bears the date 26 September 1306, is addressed to a ‘Gente Damoiselle’ and purports to be from ‘Fr. l’Ignote, imagier en N. Dame de Theuley’. It is written in a vaguely gothic script and is accompanied by sketches of the arms of the lords of Vergy (whose burial church Theuley indeed was). [Dealer description]
