Illuminated Manuscripts

Illuminated Manuscripts from the Gothic era are well represented in 16 different lots, mostly 15th century including on vellum, a page from the book of hours, a 15th century Psalter, and a gorgeous diploma in Latin from 1618.
A direct link to each lot is provided below and seldom does such an impressive run of illuminated manuscripts come up for auction with no reserve.  Each item was hand-selected by Otto Fisher as part of his significant collection and none of these have been seen on the market for over 60 years.
