Notes:

Initial D

This cutting can be dated to ca. 1270.

This initial from a Psalter-Hours is typical of the style of illumination from the Mosan region in Belgium in the third quarter of the thirteenth century. Sister cuttings from the same manuscript can be found in the Bodleian Library in Oxford, England.
