Size of leaf: 122mm x 79mm. Text area: 93mm x 60mm. 47 lines of script in 2 columns; running headings, chapter numbers and chapter initials in alternating blue and red with typical contrasting penwork flourishes. Extremely thin, fly-away vellum, showing a bit of discoloration at the edges (from a middle 20th-century masking-tape mounting) and a half-inch closed tear in the bottom margin, not affecting the text. A few tiny areas of oxidizing ink burn-through here and there. Tiny French 'pearl-script' of the middle 13th century, very similar in size and character to Derolez¿s (Palaeography of Gothic Manuscript Books) Plate 20, but with some differences in script: use of uncrossed 7-shaped Tironian abbreviation for 'et'; ÷ rather than zigzag-shaped abbreviation for 'est'; occasional use of round s (and no use of trailing s). Both ct and st ligatures are in evidence. Overall, a remarkable example of a leaf from a very tiny 'pocket bible,' here not even 5 inches by 3¿a good deal smaller than a modern paperback. With 47 lines of script in about 3 5/8", there are about twelve lines of script per inch, making this an impressive scribal performance. All still very legible, though a magnifying glass is helpful. Note that it is always my policy not to break down old books: when I offer a leaf or fragment for sale, it will always be all of that particular book that I currently own.
