Choir book

Item Info

Item No: mcai500011
Additional Title: Choir book
Language: Latin
Folio Number: front
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: Initial A with God adored by angels
Notes: The initial A in this cutting was painted in Italy, probably in the fifteenth or sixteenth centuries. The scene within the initial, however, is by an artist working in the nineteenth-century. Medieval art became fashionable in the Victorian period, and the demand for illuminated manuscripts tempted many artists to make forgeries to sell to unwitting buyers.
