Begins the Introit for the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul (June 29), "Nunc scio v ere quia misit dominus angelum suum?" (Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent his angel)
Until his identity was determined by documentary evidence, the illuminator Tomasino da Vimercate was previously known as the anonymous Master of the Modena Hours after his most characteristic work in a book of hours now in the Biblioteca Estense in Modena, Italy. Tomasino was active in Milan where he worked for ecclesiastical and lay patrons from ca. 1390 to 1415. He illuminated other leaves in the Free Library's collection (Lewis E M 27:22-23). This group of leaves and cuttings comes from the same series of choir books.
Initial N with Sts. Peter and Paul
These cuttings can be dated to ca. 1395. Cuttings are sister leaves to E M 28:2-:23 and two other leaves, one in Bloomington, Indiana University, The Lilly Library, C. L. Ricketts Coll, L. 3, and another in a private collection in Milan.
