Description: France [Valence], mid-15th century. Text displayed in single column, bâtarde hand. Rubrics in pink, two two-line initials in gold and colors, and with a miniature of Matthew and his angel, enclosed by a rounded gilt frame as well with a border on three sides, the border containing acanthus leaves, hairline vines with gold dots, and trefoils, the same border on the outer margin of the other side of the leaf. The artist here has depicted Matthew in the act of writing. Matthew sits with his back to the table and displays an unfurled scroll across his lap and a stylus held high in the air as if seeking divine inspiration.
