[ANONYMOUS], Les sept fruits de la tribulation

In French, illuminated manuscript on parchment
France, after 1482, c. 1490

Elegant manuscript containing two works of spiritual and moral edification in French translation, the former known in only five extant manuscript and still unedited, the latter apparently copied from an incunable edition of c. 1490. There is no modern critical edition of the second work, nor is there a complete census of existing manuscripts. The added heraldic composition facing the text is an interesting case of humanist personalization of an earlier manuscript by a member of the Grolée de Mévillon family, who repeated this practice in two other known vernacular manuscripts.
