Fourteen Manuscript Pages from Monistic Record circa 1400

Manuscript on rag paper with water marks, Northern France.  A very interesting Monastic record from about 1400, detailing visits of various dignitaries, mostly ecclesiastical, all in the same hand.  There are seven pages, all but one written both front and back in "cursiva format," a writing style particularly associated with northern France.  Dimensions: 8 by 5.75 inches. Processing and shipping in the U.S. $25.00 plus replacement cost insurance.  

Condition:

Quite good condition, with some minor foxing, and a few minor ink stains.  Edges of paper are slightly frayed and darkened with minor tears but generally good and legible. Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
