A Psalter, with canticles (fol. 210v), etc., written at the close of the 13th cent. in N. France (?)

MS. Douce 24
Held at the Weston Library

  • Request

Preceded by a calendar (fol. 1), and followed by a litany (fol. 231).

There are small miniatures (representing the occupations of the months, and tortures of saints), and borders, etc., and one full-page miniature at fol. 7v.

Fols. 1, 96v, 97r, are injured. The calendar seems to point to North France, and there is an admixture of Flemish saints.
