Group of five framed cut initials and leaves from fifteenth century manuscripts.
French, 1475-1500; together with two calendar leaves from Books of Hours. Likely France 1450-1500; three leaves, two from Books of Hours and one from a work on Canon Law, 1400-1500; and two cut initials from a later antiphonal. Probably Italian circa 1600. All elegantly framed.
