A Psalter, with canticles (fol. clxxxv), written at the close of the 13th cent. in France

MS. Douce 49
Held at the Weston Library

  • Request

Preceded by a calendar (fol. 4), and followed by:

  1. (fol. ccii) a litany
  2. (fol. ccviv) the Office for the Dead

The calendar points to Thérouanne or that part of France (st. Audomarus on Sept. 9, st. Maximus on Nov. 27, both in red), but the litany does not.

The first leaf of the Psalter seems to have been left blank.
