The Dutch leaves are doubtless from a Book of Hours broken up by 19 June 1990, when 8 similar leaves were sold in our rooms as lot 18. The Italian leaves were probably part of lot 17 in the same sale, from the same manuscript as a fragment of thirty-six leaves sold in our rooms 5 December 1989, lot 11, which included a calendar indicating an origin in Aquileia, and two historiated initials (one reproduced in the catalogue).
