1767 LECTIONARIUM, CONTINENS EPISTOLAS ET EVANGELIA,
VERY BEAUTIFUL MANUSCRIPT ON VELLUM, each page richly orna-
mented with initial letters illuminated in gold and colours, and
having the first line of the Epistle or Gospel of the Day written in
capital letters of silver, in the original oak boards covered with
stamped leather and protected by clasps, in a brown morocco case
small folio. SEC. xi
This magnificent specimen of early Caligraphy and Ornamentation was
probably executed in Bavaria, as on the fly-leaf is written “ Liber iste
pertinet ad Monasterium Ottenburen," that is the famous Monastery of
Ottenbeuren in Bavaria.

1769 LECTIONARIUM ET SEQUENTIE CUM ANTIPHONARIO
ET ORATIONIBUS PRO FESTIS ECCLESIÆ ROMANÆ,
A MAGNIFICENT MANUSCRIPT ON PURE VELLUM, WITH INTITULATIONS
IN LETTERS OF GOLD, BY AN ITALIAN SCRIBE, RICHLY ORNAMENTED
WITH INITIAL LETTERS EXQUISITELY PAINTED IN GLOWING
COLOURS, HEIGHTENED WITH GOLD, AND 8 EXCELLENT PAINTINGS

WITH SUPERB BORDERS EXECUTED IN THE HIGHEST STYLE OF THE FINEST PERIOD OF ITALIAN ART, MOST PROBABLY BY TADEO MINIATORE (Pope Leo Xth's famous Illuminator), oak boards, covered with crimson velvet, with gilt corners and clasps, the centre ornaments being 4 NIELLI (portraits of Leo X and Cardinal Bembo on obverse and their arms on reverse of covers), beautifully engraved and evidently the work of a first-rate artist folio. SEC. xvi THIS SUPERB MANUSCRIPT is said to have been the gift of Pope Leo X to Cardinal Bembo, and is certainly one of the most beautiful specimens of Italian ornamentation ever offered for sale. The eight paintings represent I. Birth of Christ; II. Christ rising from the Tomb; III. Nativity of St. John the Baptist; IV. St. Augustin expounding to 4 kneeling Monks; V. Saint John writing his Gospel; VI. Visit of the Three Marys to the Sepulchre; VII. High Priest and Scribes; VIII. Four Monks praying beside the Corpse of a Bishop; beneath each of which is a magnificently painted border. Altogether these two volumes, formerly in the possession of Count Cicognara, form a gem of the highest value, and would grace even the noblest library.
