81)Leaf from a Book of Hours with the Annunciation to the Shepherds ,

Illuminated leaf on vellum from a French Book of Hours to be dated to the end of the XV century.
Leaf dimensions: mm. 149 x 104; written space: mm. 95 x 61. Text in gothic ‘bâtarde’ script on a 19-lined single column. In the recto we have a full-page illumination representing the Annunciation to the Shepherds.
