This ~800 year old leaf is double sided with beautiful calligraphy and is written on a fine vellum. The Text is of the Book of Micah Chapters 1-5. This is one of the most important Old Testament texts for prophesying Jesus's birth in Bethlehem. 17x14cm approx - good condition - some darkening to the vellum in the upper area leaf and a later ink scrawl to the lower leaf (not affecting text)
